Christian Pharmacist stabbed, decapitated in attack during Ramadan

On Monday 4 July, Madgy Attia, a Christian pharmacist living in Tanta (65 miles/100 kilometres north of Cairo), was stabbed and then beheaded by attackers, said to be Muslims, who left his remains lying in one of the apartments in a block to which he had been delivering medicines. To date no arrests have been made. The murder of Magdy Attia is one of a string of attacks against Christians in Egypt that have taken place during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan (6 June to 6 July).
