From the Associated Press:
Two Christians have been killed since Wednesday, including a taxi driver who strayed into a protest by Morsi supporters in Alexandria and another man who was shot to death by Islamists in the southern province of Sohag, according to security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.

Nuns have also been targeted:
The three nuns were reportedly led to safety by a Muslim woman.
