Mystery still surrounds a car accident, which resulted in the killing of a Coptic priest and three of his relatives in El Menya governorat. This morning, March 5/ 2001, a car accident caused the death of Father Antonios Zaki Ghobrial and three of his relatives.
Father Gobrial, his wife, his sister, and two of his relatives took a taxi to travel from El Menya City to the village of El Tayeba, in Samalot County, in the Menya Governorate. The driver was Mr. Abdel Nabi Ahmed bdel Kareem, a Muslim.
Shortly after they started their trip, the driver ran into a utility pole. The collision caused the instant death of Fr. Ghobrial, his sister, and his two relatives. The wife was seriously wounded, but the driver got away with only minor injuries.
It must be noted that this "accident" is the third this year of this "mysterious" type. This should arouse the suspicion of any reasonable person as to whether there are foul play somewhere.
The Word center for Human Rights is very closely following the investigation by the local District Attorney.
