An Egyptian Christian young woman from Beni-Sweif, around 100km south of Cairo, was kidnapped last week (8 April 2018).

Rasha Khalaf Thabet set out to visit her grandfather, but never returned home. A friend saw three men force the 18-year-old into a car. Her family have reported her kidnap to police.

The kidnapping of Christian girls in Egypt and their forced conversion to Islam in preparation for marriage to a Muslim is “big business”. There are networks of abductors working as Islamic mercenary-kidnappers, who are given material rewards for abducting the Christian girls.
