Egypt Orders Arrest of Terry Jones

Egypt has ordered the arrest of Florida pastor Terry Jones for helping to promote the amateur U.S. anti-Muslim film Innocence of Muslims. Arrest warrants were also issued for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians now living in the United States, including Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who has already been questioned over his involvement with the film. The prosecutor’s office in Egypt said that the eight are accused of “insulting the Islamic religion, insulting the Prophet and inciting sectarian strife.” The office also said that if convicted all could face the death penalty.
