It began at dusk with a report that a 5-year-old Muslim girl had been raped by a Coptic Christian grocer and spread like hellfire through this dusty desert oasis. By midnight, villagers said she had been both raped and murdered. As Easter Sunday dawned, it was widely believed the deed had been perpetrated by a Coptic priest. Authorities tried desperately to quell the rumor. The little girl's family paraded her through the streets, assuring the populace that she was indeed alive and unharmed.

When topless protesters decided to take aim at Islamism, some Muslim women fired back. “Nudity DOES NOT liberate me -- and I DO NOT need saving,” one wrote on a sign, held up to the camera in an image posted on Twitter. A furious debate broke out in the blogosphere after radical feminist group Femen launched its “Topless Jihad” last week for Amina Tyler, a Tunisian woman who faced threats after sharing a topless photo of herself online. Tyler, 19,  had written “My body is mine, not somebody's honor" across her chest in Arabic in solidarity with Femen, a Kiev, Ukraine-based group known for topless protests.

WASHINGTON - By providing a way to avert a U.S. military strike, Russia's proposal that Syria surrender its chemical weapons has offered a host of world leaders an exit from an increasingly damaging political crisis. The plan, which is expected to be hashed out in the United Nations over the next week or longer, has quickly gained supporters in Europe, the Middle East and the U.S. Congress.
