A 26-year-old Coptic Christian man and his fiancé were arrested yesterday on the accusation that they blasphemed against the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, and his child-bride, Aisha, on Facebook.
When news, or the accusation, that Michael Munir had posted something offensive concerning Muhammad, dozens of Muslims surrounded his house in the village of Dimyana in Daqhiliya governate, Egypt.
The angry Muslims were reportedly about to burn his home before security forces arrived and arrested him. The Copt is being held for four days pending investigation. It is not clear if his fiancé also remains jailed or was released (reports are conflicting).
