Christians in two Egyptian towns given ultimatum: leave or be killed
Catholic World News - September 24, 2012
Christian families in two north Sinai towns found notices attached to their homes and businesses ordering them to leave or be killed.
Pledging to remain, Father Gabriel Habib said that “even if we die, we are not better than the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of their homeland and religion.”
An official of the local Coptic Orthodox diocese said he believed the notices were the work of isolated individuals angered by the recent video critical of Muhammad.
