“Egyptian Christian Shopkeeper Murdered In Suspected Sectarian Attack,” by Mark Woods, , January 5, 2017:

A Christian shopkeeper has been murdered in the Egyptian city of Alexandria in a suspected sectarian killing.

According to International Christian Concern (ICC), Youssef Lamei was smoking a pipe outside his shop in the popular Montazah district when the man accused of the murder, reportedly a 48-year-old hard-line Salafist, yelled “Allah Akbar” and cut Lamei’s throat. Police arrested the suspect early on Wednesday morning.

Lamei’s brother Nasef told ICC: “The killing of my brother was planned and carried out accurately as the killer visited the shop many times before committing the crime and knew that my brother used to sit in this place.”
