I received an email from the LDS Church PR department denying any relation with regarding that Mormon group in Upper Egypt , this is what the LDS Church said :
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today categorically denied a report in an Egyptian newspaper over the weekend that a group of American Mormons were arrested in Luxor for proselytizing or preaching Mormon doctrine. The report was carried outside Egypt by The Press Trust of India.
The Church has carefully checked with several sources to investigate the claim, including the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, and other in-country sources. There is no record of such an incident.
The Church emphasized today that students representing the Church’s Brigham Young University, and any other members representing the Church, are strictly prohibited from proselytizing in countries where it would contravene local law. Spokeswoman Kim Farah in Salt Lake City said that the Church respected all other faiths and the laws that apply in each individual country.“This reported incident simply did not happen,” she said.
So according to the LDS church this incident simply has not happened but unfortunately for the Egyptian Press it has happened. Al Shorouk newspaper has just published a report about the incident with very interesting details despite they did not give names.
According to Al Shorouk group has been deported and that the American embassy finished all the papers for that group to leave the country after being informed by the interior ministry of the incident. So unlike the LDS Church the American Embassy according to Al Shorouk which is reputable newspaper in Egypt says the incident took place. If you think that this is interesting then you must wait for the coming because it is even more interesting.
According to the newspaper's source in the American embassy no information will be revealed about the identity of those involved in the incident because of the American law confidentiality !!! I believe the incident happened outside the United States !!
Neither the general prosecution office in Luxor nor the State security prosecution office were reported about the incident in the first which means officially it did not take place BUT the State security according to the newspaper was involved in the matter and deported the group with the help of the American embassy as fast as it could.
So officially this incident did not take place but off the record there seems to be something has happened in Upper Egypt , people there do not know Mormonism in general so why it is brought up !!?? There is no smoke without fire. May be this was a Mormon missionary from a sect that does not follow the main LDS Church
