US female Christian Missionaries Warned About Terror Threats

There has been chatter about American female Christian missionaries potentially being targeted by terrorists in Egypt, so the U.S. has issued a warning telling them to watch their backs.

“The embassy has credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting U.S. female missionaries in Egypt,” the American mission in Cairo said in a statement on its website.
“Accordingly, U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance, taking necessary precautions to maintain their personal security,” it said, calling on Americans to ensure they can be contacted by diplomatic missions in case of emergency.

I'm actually surprised they allowed foreign Christian missionaries in Muslim majority countries?  I thought you could hang for proselytizing. Or maybe that's just ex-Muslims who are executed for apostasy.

Interesting how the only targets are female.
