Muslims order Christians to leave village in Egypt. According to Assyrian International News Agency, Copts in the North Sinai border town of Rafah have started leaving their homes after receiving an ultimatum from Islamists to leave "within 48 hours" or be killed. According to confirmed reports, nine Coptic families have left the town. The remaining 23 Coptic families are still there, waiting to leave. One Copt who is still with his family in Rafah said "it is difficult for us to leave as most of us are shop-owners and have property, so it is not easy just to leave everything and go." The Copts are all confined to their homes, afraid to venture out.

The free fall suggests sanctions imposed over Iran's nuclear program are undermining its ability to earn foreign exchange and that its reserves of hard currency may be running low.
