Egyptian policeman referred to criminal court for murder of two Minya Copts
Published in Ahram Online on 18 - 12 - 2018

Egypt's general prosecution has said that it is referring a police sergeant to criminal court over the murder of a Coptic man and his son in Upper Egypt's Minya last week.
In an official statement, the prosecution said police sergeant Rabie Mostafa Khalifa, who was assigned to guard the Church of Nahdet El-Qadasa, was referred to court in an emergency session for killing Emad Kamal and his son David.
The prosecution charged Khalifa with the premeditated murder of the two men using his service weapon after reviewing CCTV footage from the scene of the crime.
The prosecution said that Khalifa confessed to the crime, but did not reveal a possible motive.
On Saturday, the prosecution said that the killing was sparked due to a "verbal altercation."
The incident has sparked outrage among citizens and Church officials.
Coptic Christians make up around 10 to 15 percent of Egypt's 104 million Muslim-majority population.
