Islamic extremists increase activity in Egypt
CWN - April 13, 2011
Islamic extremists have shown new vigor in Egypt since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, a Catholic missionary priest reports.
Father Luciano Verdoscia tells the Fides news service that 3,000 Islamic militants recently returned to Egypt from abroad. "They are Egyptians who were involved with Al Qaida and other extremist organizations and they are returning to direct the evolution of local society."
Most ordinary Egyptians are wary of Islamic fundamentalists, the missionary reports. But the net result of their activities is not yet determined.
