Egypt: Surge in Kidnapping, Forced Conversion of Christian Girls…

International Christian Concern says there has been a surge in incidents in the last two months with little help from the authorities.

Chilling videos have been published online of teenage girls saying they chose to run away and convert.

But the families left behind and the ICC say victims are being beaten and raped before being blackmailed into taking part in the videos.

The ICC says Upper Egypt is “paralysed” by the number of disappearances of young girls.
