The Daily Caller | Nov. 18, 2018
Egyptian authorities sentenced a man accused of supporting ISIS to death Saturday for the 2017 murder of a Christian doctor in Cairo.
Prosecutors said the unidentified 40-year-old man posed as a patient seeking the services of the 82-year-old doctor and that he stabbed the doctor to death as soon as he entered the examination room, The Associated Press reported. The man also stabbed the doctor’s assistant when she attempted to stop the attack, though she survived. (RELATED: Islamic Militants Who Killed 7 Egyptian Christians Slain In Shootout)
The attacker’s sentence was sent to the top imam in Egypt to be ratified as a formality. The imam’s decision whether or not to ratify the sentence is non-binding.
