A Coptic Orthodox priest was slaughtered in the street in the Egyptian capital last month, horrifying Christians in the country.


This week the priest’s killer, 19-year-old Ahmad Saeed Ibrahim al-Sonbati, was sentenced to death for the horrific attack, which also left another priest injured.


Open Doors, a Christian persecution watchdog, said priest Samaan Shehata was “attacked with a cleaver” when he was visiting Cairo for a conference.


The group, quoting local press, said the killer had been looking for “any priest” to kill when he stumbled across Mr Shehata.
