Cairo: The wife of an Egyptian Coptic priest whose disappearance had sparked demonstrations here, has now been found, a week after she went missing.

The woman, wife of the bishop of Al-Minya's Dayr Mawas monastery had disappeared under mysterious circumstances and protesters alleged that she was abducted.

Sources at the central church on Saturday said the woman had left a week ago over marital disputes and has now returned.
