Four Egyptian students arrested for mocking Christians in video

Police on Saturday have arrested four students in Abu Hamid, Sharqiya, after they published a video on YouTube showing them mocking Christian hymns and prayers.

During investigation the students said they filmed the clip in front of student al-Sayed’s house in 6th of October city’s Azhar institute on January 31, and that one of the students, Mostafa, was the one who uploaded the video as a joke.

The students claimed they removed the clip following harsh criticism and recorded another clip to apologize.

Investigations denied social media rumors that Mostafa was a relative to an official employee in Ministry of Endowment in Sharqiya.

Azhar University decided to transfer Mostafa into the disciplinary committee to investigate the case further and apply the appropriate punishment.
