Students of the teacher, Dimyānah ‘Ubayd, 23, accused of contempt of Islam and attempting to convert students, have denied her charges. Of the 14 children in her class, ten of them have denied the event took place, whereas three confirm it. 'Ubayd denied the charges and claims that religious extremists incited school students to testify against her. The social science teacher in Luxor has been held under custody for four days pending investigation. The head of the parents association at Sheikh Sultan Primary School brought the charges, made at the Luxor Educational Directorate, against her. Some have claimed that teachers within the school are attempting to start fitnah. 'Ubayd is receiving legal help from the Egyptian Coptic Coalition in Luxor (Nirmīn Majdī, al-Tahrīr, May 11, p. 6).
