About 100 Egyptian Coptic Christians have been detained in Libya on suspicion of spreading the Gospel, according to Ahram Online.
A Coptic source says the Christians are Egyptian traders who worked with the Benghazi municipal market. They were taken captive when extremist Muslims raided their church in Benghazi. The men reportedly have been tortured.
Meanwhile, the Coptic archbishop responsible for Libya said it doesn't make sense that so many Coptic Christian's decided to proselytize in another country.
Egyptian authorities are working with the Libyans to resolve the situation.
