Christians freed in Egypt...


[Media Source*]

Egypt has released the last of nine detainees after 1,000 Christians demonstrated against the disappearance of 48 year old Waffa Constantine who they claimed was abducted by her Muslim boss and forced to convert to Islam. The Christians who belong to the Coptic church, reportably threw rocks at the policemen in Egypt, injuring 60 officers.

34 were detained in connection with the unrest. First Published 2005-01-04, Last Updated 2005-01-04 17:06:15.


The protest happened on December 8th where Christians staged a sit-in at the compound in the main Coptic Cathedral in Cairo. Apparently when police encountered them rocks where thrown which resulted in the arrest of 35 members. The head of Egypt's Coptic Church (Pope Shenuda III) holed himself up in the desert monastery to protest the arrests of the Christians. A few days later Wafaa Constantine resurfaced and was later on quoted that, "She was born and would die a Christian."



The last of the detainees were released after posting bail at $50 each. Hopefully Egypt will become more tolerant of those of "differing" faiths and the latter end of Wafaa Constantine's statement will not have to happen. Selah!
