Ethnic Cleansing of Christians in Upper Egypt
Coptic Christians are a small minority in Egypt, and have always been vulnerable to the whims of the country’s rulers and the mobs of the “Muslim street”. In recent years the persecution of the Copts has grown more intense, with reports of murder, arson, looting, and forced conversions becoming more common.

A suicide bomber wearing an explosives-filled vest Thursday killed eight people and wounded 24 others while targeting a private security convoy in an eastern Afghan town, an official said.
“This was a suicide attack. So far we know that eight people are dead, but that figure could change,” said Rohullah Samon, a spokesman for the governor of Paktia province.
The attack happened in Gardez, the provincial capital, at 4:30pm local time, outside a branch of the Kabul Bank when the suicide bomber approached on foot.
“The head of a security company… was moving with his convoy when he was attacked by a suicide bomber wearing a suicide vest,” Mr Samon said. ABC has more

Fourteen suspected terrorists died Tuesday night when the bus they rigged with explosives blew up prematurely, police said.
The explosion occurred as the suspects were riding the bus in the province of Kunduz, said police chief Abdul Raziq Yaqobi.
And in otherÂ terrorist news:
U.S. border security officials learned of intelligence about the alleged extremist links of the suspect in the Christmas Day airline bombing attempt as he was en route to Detroit and hadÂ decided to question him when he landed, officials said in new disclosures today.
There’s a small flaw in that plan.
