Egypten kallar hem personal från sin Vatikan ambassad

…för att Påven försvarat kristna….

(RTT News) — Egypt has recalled its ambassador to the Vatican in protest after Pope Benedict XVI urged the governments of several Muslim-dominated countries including Egypt to ensure that their Christian minorities are able to practice their faith without discrimination or violence.

“Egypt asked its ambassador in the Vatican to come to Cairo for consultation after the Vatican’s new statements that touch on Egyptian affairs, and which Egypt considers an unacceptable interference in its internal affairs,” foreign ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said in a statement on Tuesday.

Cairo’s angry reaction came a day after Pope Benedict cited attacks on Christians in Egypt, Iraq and Nigeria in a speech to diplomats accredited to the Vatican on Monday, and urged those nations to take more steps to protect their Christian minority.

The Pope said the string of attacks carried out against Christians in these countries showed “the urgent need for the governments of the region to adopt, in spite of difficulties and dangers, effective measures for the protection of religious minorities.”

Hmmm, instabil enhet…
