Shocking: Christian woman Asia Bibi, pictured, has seen her appeal against the death sentence denied

A Pakistani Christian woman has been sentenced to hang after she was accused of making 'blasphemous' comments about the prophet Mohammed during an argument. 

While working as a berry picker in 2009, 46-year-old Asia Bibi got into a dispute with a group of Muslim women who objected to her drinking their water because as a Christian she was considered 'unclean'.

Hours after the incident one of the women reported mother-of-five Ms Bibi to a local cleric, claiming she had made disparaging remarks about the prophet Mohammed during the row.

As a result of the allegations, a furious mob arrived at Ms Bibi's home and savagely beat her and members of her family. 

She was later arrested, charged with blasphemy and eventually sentenced to death - with her entire family forced to go into hiding after receiving threats on their lives.

The politician said more UK youngsters than ever were being recruited by the terror group.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "The official figures are a huge understatement. The true figure of British radicals in Syria and Iraq is closer to 2,000. Still the numbers are rising."

Two teenage girls who fled home to join Islamic State militants reportedly want to come home after being married to foreign fighters and falling pregnant.

Sabina Selimovic, 15, and Samra Kesinovic, 17, left their families in Austria in April and were believed to have traveled to Turkey before crossing over to Syria.

However, the Telegraph reports that the pair have grown disillusioned with the restrictions of life under the radical Muslim group, which forbids women to talk with whomever they like.

Tony Blair Office

 

The former prime minister warns a global campaign to defeat the forces of radical Islam will take a generation. 

Tony Blair has told Sky News that radical Islam is a "global problem" that will take a generation to defeat.

Speaking to Sky's Adam Boulton from New York, the former prime minister said defeating the forces of radical Islam will need a "global response".

"I think President Obama is doing absolutely the right thing in assembling the broadest alliance against Isis," Mr Blair said, referring to Islamic State militants.

"(But) even if we deal with this Isis group, you've got a plethora of these types of groups, not just in the Middle East but in North Africa and elsewhere in the world.

"Looking at this broader issue of radical Islam ... this is a global problem.

A bomb blast beside Egypt’s foreign ministry killed three policemen on Sunday, including a key witness in a trial of deposed Islamist President Mohammad Mursi.

The blast, the worst attack in Cairo for months, killed two police lieutenant colonels and a recruit, Reuters news agency quoted the foreign ministry.

Ajnad Misr, the Islamist militant group that carried out the last significant attack in Cairo, claimed responsibility for the blast in a statement posted on their official Twitter account.

"This new operation shows we can penetrate and reach the vicinity of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs...to destroy the officers of the criminal security agencies and make them taste some of what they have made Muslims taste," it said.
