Egypt's pope negotiates for release of Copts in Libyan jail

Sources told Ahram Online that the pope could ask Copts to end their siege of the Libyan embassy in Cairo if the Libyan authorities secure the release of the prisoners.

On Friday, the Libyan authorities released 55 copts it had accused of proselytising in the predominantly Muslim country.

Angry protesters have shut the Libyan mission in the Egyptian capital for several days.
