Question of the Day
The two spots ran on both state and private television stations for a few days before Minister of Information Ahmed Anis ordered them off the air. One opens with a blond-haired young man scanning a cafe while a narrator says:
“From the beginning, he knows why he is here and sets up his goal. He won’t have to spend much time getting to know the people in the place.”
The foreigner then spots three young Egyptians and heads over to them, saying in broken Arabic: “I love you so much.” The narrator says: “Our generosity has no limits,” as one of the Egyptians stands up, shakes hands and invites the foreigner to sit with them.
It goes on to show the foreigner smiling slyly and narrowing his eyes while listening intently to young Egyptians complaining about the economy and talking about overhearing a plot against the ruling military council while in the subway. The narrator warns Egyptians not to share with outsiders their woes about the country’s economy or political situation.
Boko Haram kills three in church attacks
JOS — A suicide bomber blew his car up outside a church and gunmen opened fire on another service in Nigeria on Sunday, killing three people and wounding dozens in attacks claimed by Boko Haram.
The assaults were the latest in a series targeting churches in Africa’s most populous nation and largest oil producer, with many of the previous attacks also claimed by the Islamist group, whose insurgency has killed hundreds.
A purported spokesman for Boko Haram claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attacks and threatened further violence.
“”The Nigerian state and Christians are our enemies and we will be launching attacks on the Nigerian state and its security apparatus as well as churches until we achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state in place of the secular state,” the spokesman said.
The attacks took place at evangelical churches in the central city of Jos and the northeastern town of Biu, both of which have been hit before by violence blamed on Boko Haram.
Court convicts Libyans for killing soldiers
TUNIS — A Tunisian military tribunal Sunday convicted two Libyans accused of belonging to al-Qaeda’s north African division of being accomplices in the murder of two Tunisian soldiers in May 2011, and sentenced them to 20 years in prison.
Imed Ben Meftah Youssef and Hafedh Ben Meftah Dh’baa also were convicted of possession of illegal weapons and ammunition, explosives and other charges.
