A hardline Muslim cleric in Egypt has been given an 11-year suspended sentence for tearing up and burning a Bible.
Egypt's official news agency said the incident took place at a Sept. 11 rally held by an ultra-conservative Muslim group in front of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
Ahmed Abdullah, also known as Abu Islam (father of Islam), was fined 3,000 ($430) Egyptian pounds. His son, who joined in the Bible burning, received an eight-year suspended sentence and a 2,000-pound ($286) fine.
According to the report, Abdullah said he'd planned to send his grandson to urinate on the Bible.
Egyptian law says it's a crime to show contempt toward the "heavenly" religions of Christianity, Islam, or Judaism.
Critics say the law is vague and most often used against critics of Islam.
