Seven-Year-Old Coptic Girl Kidnapped, Held for Ransom

By Coptic Solidarity

Earlier this month, “unknown persons” in Egypt kidnapped a 7-year-old Christian girl in Dakhaleya Province in northern Egypt. The girl, Jessica Nadi Gabriel, was attending a wedding ceremony with her family when her abductors kidnapped her. Her father later confirmed that the 7-year-old girl’s abductors called him demanding a 650,000 Egyptian Pound ransom—the equivalent of nearly $100,000 USD.

Kidnapping Christian children in Egypt in exchange for ransom is on the rise. A couple weeks ago, a 6-year-old Coptic boy who was kidnapped and held for ransom, was still killed and discarded in the sewer—even after his family paid the Muslim kidnapper the demanded ransom.
