The attached Middle East Watch report on Egypt provides information on the status of Christians, which also makes reference to inter-religious marriages, might be useful.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
