CAIRO -- An armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked on the streets in an attack last week in which seven Christian homes were also looted and torched in a province south of the Egyptian capital.

According to the local Orthodox Coptic church and security officials, the assault in the Minya province village of Karma on Friday began after rumors spread that the elderly woman's son had an affair with a Muslim woman -- a taboo in conservative Egypt.

Police have arrested six men suspected of taking part in the violence and are looking for 12 more, the security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The Obama administration has spent at least $18.5 million to fly "unaccompanied children" caught crossing into the country illegally to parents and relatives inside the United States, according to newly obtained figures.

The numbers, shared with FoxNews.com by the Senate subcommittee on immigration, were provided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in response to questions from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

The numbers shed light on the extent of a program that has drawn scrutiny not just from lawmakers but the federal courts, amid concerns the U.S. government is effectively aiding smugglers.

"This shows how fundamentally flawed our approach to immigration enforcement has been in the Obama administration," a Senate aide who has seen the questions to and answers from ICE Director Sarah Saldana told FoxNews.com.


Police in Arizona arrested an undocumented immigrant who had been using a deceased veteran's identity to get medical and Social Security benefits.

Rene Ortiz Quintana, 69, took the identity of Ruben J. Gallardo, who has been dead since 1994, to get Social Security, VA and other Federal, state and local benefits since 2012.

Quintana received benefits totaling $29,062.19, according to ABC News.

Quintana, who has lived in the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant for around 50 years, used Gallardo's information to an Arizona identification card, a state health card, a Phoenix health plan card and a VA choice card. The choice card allows veterans to get medical care at Non-VA facilities.

Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo issued a regulation Wednesday that provides tougher penalties for child rapists, including chemical castration and the death penalty.

He said the administrative order is a response to increasing sexual violence against children.

"I have declared that sexual offenses against children are an extraordinary crime, because they threaten and endanger the lives of children," Jokowi said.

"An extraordinary crime deserves an exceptional response," he said. "Therefore, this regulation imposes heavier punishments and additional measures for the perpetrators of the violence."
