(Worthy News) - A Coptic Orthodox priest has been stabbed to death in Cairo, Egypt. The head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the UK has decried what he said was the injustice surrounding the crime.

Father Samaan from Beni Suef in Upper Egypt was attacked and stabbed to death yesterday while walking down a street in Cairo. He had been in the area to collect humanitarian aid for his parishioners.

'Another day in Egypt with another Coptic Christian murdered', said His Grace Bishop Angaelos, the head of the UK Coptic Orthodox Church, in a statement yesterday detailing the attack.

'Fr Samaan was paying a pastoral visit to a family in Cairo and returned to the church where he was earlier to collect his mobile phone. On the way, he was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant who chased him, stabbed him repeatedly, and then brutally killed him.' [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]

  1. It's very sad that anyone is murdered, esp in the performance of doing good works, humanitarian aid, to anyone.

    However, he's not a priest. I doubt he's a real Christian.

    That some cult member was murdered, is a story about some cult member murdered. It's sad. It's wrong, It's a crime.

    But it is not a Christian who was killed. Or he'd have known better than to stay where he's not a priest. Jesus (Y'shua) is our High Priest and if there are any "Priests" on this earth, it is all of them who know and worship him.

    That's not the "Coptic Church" though i am sure there are some, like among the Atheist groups, who can come to know the truth of the good news of Messiah come.
