title : Christian Children in Egypt Sentenced for Reverse Blasphemy After Mocking ISIS Video
summary : Egyptian authorities sentenced four Christian children and their teacher with blasphemy charges and prison time regarding a video mocking the extremist group Islamic State, also known as ISIS. "These children shouldn't face prison for expressing themselves, even with an immature joke," said Nadim Houry, deputy Middle East director. "The continued prosecution of blasphemy cases in Egypt goes against the government's claim to be promoting a more inclusive vision of religion."
