(Worthy News) - A criminal court in Upper Egypt’s Minya Governorate has issued a death sentence against policeman Rabie Mustafa Khalifa. This past December, he had approached two Coptic Christians and shot them at close range.
Initially, police alleged that Mustafa had shot these men in self-defense. However, ICC reported how security camera footage showed Mustafa had walked towards these Christians with his weapon pulled. Mustafa was a church guard who had disagreement with these Christians a few days prior. Witness testimony and video footage showed how this murder was premeditated. The two Christians killed were a father and son.
The death sentence in Egypt must be confirmed by the Grand Mufti of al-Azhar. [ Source: ICC (Read More...) ]
