Egyptian Christian man killed, shot 20 times
Last week, masked Muslim gunmen killed a young Christian man in the Egyptian city of Dabaa.
The killers shot Rani Raafat over 20 times at his place of work before burning his car and fleeing.
Raafat worked in veterinary medicine and had no known enemies. His family suspects sectarian-religious motives.
Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”
International Christian Concern President Jeff King said, “We are saddened to hear the news of yet another violent incident targeting an Egyptian Christian. … We are watching Egypt closely to see if these are warning signs of a more challenging future for Egyptian Christians.”
Earlier this month, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recommended that Egypt be put on the State Department’s Special Watchlist for religious freedom violations.
Egypt is the 20th worst country in the world for the persecution of Christians.
Denmark stops COVID shots
The Danish Health Authority said, “Spring has arrived, vaccine coverage in the Danish population is high, and the epidemic has reversed.”
The U.S. and Europe have been relaxing COVID-19 restrictions. However, China has enacted new lockdowns in major cities which have hurt their economy and global supply chains.
