NYT: "Egype Rejects Registration Bids From 8 U.S. Nonprofit Groups"

In its continuing coverage of troubles U.S. nonprofit organizations are having with the Egyptian government (previously blogged about here and here), the NY Times reports that the Egyptian Insurance and Social Affairs Ministry has rejected registration applications from eight U.S. nonprofits.  The grounds for the rejections are reported to be that the groups' activities violated Egyptian sovereignty.  The groups ranged from the well known Carter Center to a Mormon missionary group to an organization for Coptic Christian orphansReuters also reports that this week Interpol denied a request from Egypt to issue worldwide arrest warrants for 15 employees of U.S. non-governmental organizations, including 12 who are U.S. citizens.  The reported grounds for the denial was that the request was not in line with Interpol's rules that forbid political, military, religious or racial interventions.
