Christians in Egypt are coming under more severe persecution than ever as Muslim groups are promising to wipe them out.
In a recent story, a Christian woman was walking down the street when a “mentally ill” Muslim man approached her and then slashed her throat in broad daylight. The woman survived, but she was badly injured. Afterwards, the man was arrested but they said they did ‘not understand’ why he attacked her:
The Egyptian security forces managed to arrest a mentally disabled man who stopped a Christian woman in the street and tried to slaughter her.
A security source said that a Coptic citizen named Mary Jamil Massad was surprised while walking in Abdel Moneim Riad Street area when a person under duress stopped her and tried to slaughter her with a knife.
He added that parents and passerby were able to save her.
It was found that the accused Mamdouh Ramadan Taha, aged 36 years and lives in the same area, and suffering from mental illness. He was asked why he was willing to do the crime and it was not understood why.
The prosecution was informed and the victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. (source)
