Orthodox Christian Network brings you news of events and people important to the life of the Orthodox Church around the world. OCN highlights media organizations that track these important stories.
According to an article on Brietbart.com, a 70-year-old Christian woman was stripped, beaten and marched naked through the streets in Southern Egypt.
On May 20, 2016, an armed mob of some 300 Muslim men carried out this brutal “punishment” because her son is suspected of carrying on a relationship with a Muslim woman.
But it didn’t stop there. According to the article, “the mob also torched seven homes belonging to Christian families in the village of Karam in the Minya province, burning them to the ground.”
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has demanded justice for the Christians, who make up 10% of the nation’s population. He has ordered the military to “restore the damaged property at no cost to the owners.”
