The Coptic Orthodox Church has established a “crisis unit” to help evacuate all Egypts still living in Libya, the Fides news service reports.

The crisis unit, under the direction of the secretary of the Coptic Synod, is amassing information about any Copts who moved to Egypt to pursue work opportunities there. The unit will work with the Egyptian military to establish plans for bringing them back to Egypt.
