Coptic Priest found dead in southern EgyptSpeculation surrounds the priest's death
Ahram Portal, Wednesday 23 Feb 2011
A protest of 3,000 erupted in southern Egypt in response to the killing of a Coptic priest who was found in his home, where he had been dead for two days.
Ahram's correspondent in Assiut reports three differing scenarios emerging around the case.
Police officials claim that the priest's safe was found open and valuables missing indicating it was a violent theft.
Menawhile, those in disagreement with the police's version of events allege the murder was committed by security personnel to counter calls that the state security should be withdrawn. Others point the finger at one of the priest's enemies.
The victim was killed at his home, in the village of Shob, where he had been alone.

Keep burrying your heads in the sand!
Other newspapers didn't mention any of such scenarios al-ahram alleged. They simply mentioned that masked Islamists were seen by neighbors, shouting God is Great leaving the murder scene. Since 28th January, 13 Copts were murdered in Maghagha, 2 in Assiut, a Coptic woman kidnapped in Omraneyya, 4 monks injured in Beheira, a church burnt in Sinai ... I'm amazed by the cowardice of Egyptian officials and newspapers who keeps ignoring these incidents. '
