Egypt's Coptics choose new Pope

Egypt's Coptic Christian Church has chosen a new pope. Bishop, Tawadros became the new leader of the church early Sunday when a boy whose eyes were covered picked his name from a glass container. The selection was made at a ceremony in Cairo's Coptic Cathedral. Bishop Tawadros is 60 years old. He follows Pope Shenouda the Third who died last March at the age of 88. Church activists hope the new pope will guide Coptics through the insecurity in Egypt since the last year's political revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak. Christians are about 10 percent of Egypt's population. Most of rest are Muslim.

Great work. I just spotted one typo (Chritians), so I'd call this perfect. I think it's impressive how well you can understand international stories like this.
