Abdel Kareem Nabil

Egyptian Blogger Appeals Prison Sentence

CAIRO, Egypt -- Lawyers filed an appeal Monday on behalf of a blogger who was sentenced to four years in prison for insulting Islam and Egypt's president.

Abdel Kareem Nabil, a former law student at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, used his blog to advocate secularism and criticize conservative Muslims.

Let's hope Egypt comes to it's senses.
