Two refereed to Mufti for death penalty over Helwan Church attack
Attack occurred in 2017 killing 10 people
Published in Daily News Egypt on 17 - 04 - 2019

The Cairo Criminal Court referred two defendants on Tuesday to the Grand Mufti seeking his opinion on a preliminary death sentence for them over their alleged participation in the Helwan Church attack in December 2017.
The court will announce its final verdict concerning the two defendants, as well as another nine defendants, on 12 May.
The attack killed 10 people as militants opened fire on the Mar Mina Church in the Helwan suburb south of Cairo and attacked a Copt-owned shop. The attackers started by shooting at the shop, which was owned by a Coptic citizen, killing two men. Then shots were heard at the Mar Mina Church.
At the time, hours after the attack, the Amaq news agency, which is affiliated with the Islamic State militant group, said that a squad of militants executed the attack against the church, without revealing any details. The agency, however, released a video allegedly showing a masked assailant stating his pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and encouraging other militants in Sinai.
