A 15 year old Egyptian girl was abducted by a group of Muslim men, and threatened with rape if she did not convert to Islam, according to a report by Voice of the Martyrs. Lorans Emeel was snatched from a public bus in El Mahala Al Kobra on October 2nd. Her captors sent a text message to her parents, stating "The girl is not accepting easily, but she will embrace Islam for sure". But she managed to escape the next night, while her kidnappers were taking a break from their Ramadan fast. The Voice of the Martyrs states that kidnapping of Christian teenagers in Islamic countries has reached epidemic proportions.
Quote: "The kidnapping was reported only by the El Tareek, the sole Arabic Christian newspaper in the Middle East. It said that the abductors wanted the girl, a student at Saida Nafesa High School in El Mahala Al Kobra, to reject Christ and embrace Islam.
