Islamic Tolerance Alert: “Authorities Still Holding Christians Arrested In April Rioting: After nearly four months, government has yet to report on Alexandria church stabbings,” from Compass Direct:
August 9 (Compass Direct News) — Egypt has detained seven Christian men without charge since a fatal knife attack on churches here last April triggered two days of violence in the Mediterranean coastal city. Alexandrian Christians plan to sue the country”s Interior Ministry for the men’s release, as well as for compensation for Christian-owned shops and Orthodox churches that were damaged during the unrest. Hesham Azmy Iskender was among 101 Christians and Muslims who were originally detained. Over the following month, police released most of the prisoners. But they have continued to renew the imprisonment of Iskender and six other Christians, even after the prosecutor general issued orders for the release of all the detainees in May.
