Egypt clamps hold over mosques to control message

In this Friday, April 11, 2014, file photo, Egyptian worshippers enter Amr ibn al-Aas Mosque for Friday prayers, in Cairo, Egypt. Egyptian authorities are tightening control on mosques around the country, filtering out preachers and seeking to control the message, as the military-backed government cracks down on Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood following his ouster last summer. Some 12,000 clerics have been barred from preaching. The Religious Endowments Ministry, or Awqaf in Arabic, now sets strict guidelines for sermons, and anyone who strays from them in Egypt’s more than 100,000 mosques risks removal.
