An Egyptian blogger has been sent to jail for four years for insulting Islam.
The man, Abdul Kareem Suleiman Amer, was arrested last November. He had used his weblog to criticize Islam. He had also said God might not exist. Amer had posted to several Coptic (Egyptian Christian) blogs.
Bloggers in the Middle East have been arrested before. But Amer is the first one to be sentenced to jail.
