Egypt has ordered five Americans and a Frenchman, who have been held on suspicion of belonging to a sexually oriented religious cult, to leave the country, prosecutors announced. They said the deportation order was based on “political considerations,” apparently referring to pressure from the U.S. and French embassies. The six are the last of 15 people investigated by Egypt for alleged ties to the U.S.-based Children of God cult, whose unorthodox sexual and religious beliefs run counter to Egyptian law.
