What I Read Online – 08/15/2013 (a.m.)

15 Aug
    • I have just received the sad news of the complete burning and destruction (by Muslim fundamentalists) of our Bible Society’s bookshops in Assiut & Minia (the largest cities in Southern Egypt).  These were both very beautiful, fully equipped bookshops.  Fortunately we were closed today, fearing such an attack, so none of our staff were injured.  The attackers demolished the metal doors protecting the bookshops, broke the store windows behind them and set the bookshops on fire. They did the same to many stores on those streets as well as demolishing many parked cars.
