They asked him if he was a Christian, and when he said he was, they doused him with kerosene and lit him on fire. He died a few days later in the hospital, along with three others who were killed in front of their church in El-Khosos, Cairo, Egypt. To add insult to injury, an attack on their funeral at St. Mark's Cathedral, the Papal Seat, led to Egyptian police firing tear gas INTO the Cathedral, in an unprecendented attack that left two more Egyptians dead.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood-led regime is using the same tactics of the previous regime - using sectarian conflicts to cover for their obvious failings. The United States must end its support of this failing government and demand justice for the perpetrators of these killings.
