A homing pigeon was found Sunday with a message fixed to one of its feet and a microfilm to the other, stated Qalyubia Security Directorate.

Saber Ibrahem, a security guard in the Egypt's northeastern city of Qalyubia, filed a report after he found an injured homing pigeon carrying a message that reads "Islam Egypt" and a microfilm.

The pigeon has been sent to the Criminal Investigation Department while the microfilm has been sent to the Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU) to be developed.

Investigations into the incident are underway.

Stool pigeon
What kind of pigeon is it?A stool pigeon might reveal information,but a carrier pigeon won't, unless it's been cross bred with a canary.

Laughing tears...
"The pigeon has been sent to the Criminal Investigation Department...", sorry, tell me that this is a joke - I laughed tears... Is it already known what the pigeon said for it's defence, it's destination or about the circumstances of it's crash? Any conspiracy or sabotage theory? Mossad, CIA, MI 5 or so?

Unbelievable!
Do you see? This is the true face of the Islamists! Not only do they abuse and oppress human beings, but they do it to poor animals too! Monsters! The film is probably going to be a death threat or something evil...
