Insulting Islam Gets Egyptian Christian Three Years in Prison

Reuters has reported that a 17-year-old Christian youth in Egypt has been sentenced to three years in prison for mocking Islam and Mohammad on his Facebook page. The youth, Gamal Abdoud Massoud, drew cartoons to post on the website and also allegedly shared some with his friends in a village near the city of Assiut. In December, word that the cartoons had been distributed led to violence in Massoud's community, as several Muslims attacked Christians and burned their homes.

Thanks to Religion Clause Blog for first bringing this to my attention.
