Egypt: town officials expel Christian family

Catholic World News - March 21, 2012

Officials in Amriya, Egypt, have expelled all members of a Christian family from their homes after one members of the family was accused of having an affair with a Muslim woman. After their expulsion, their homes were looted.

“The only thing that this means is that police don't want us in the country,” said Nabil Gergis, brother of the accused man. “It’s a feeling that I cannot describe. My children don't have a home anymore.”
