A Copt arrested in Egypt for eating Danish cheese
This is NOT a joke!
A 56-years old Copt was arrested in Egypt for buying and eating Danish cheese!
Mokhles Tharwat was arrested by Egyptian state security agency two weeks ago and has been detained ever since.
Mr Mokhles suffers from heart disease. The conditions he faces in detainment, especially that he faces no official accusation, may be life threatening.
A Muslim neighbor of Mr Mokhles is believed to be behind the arrest.
Most Egyptian supermarkets are still boycotting Danish products after a Danish newspaper published photos of the Islamic prophet that some Muslims considered to be "offensive".
