ICC Note: Another Egyptian Christian has been found killed while serving with the military. The incident was set up to appear as suicide, but the circumstances point towards foul play. There are incidents where a argument breaks out between and Christian and Muslim, but the results are that the Christian is killed and there is no justice for him or his family.
11/30/2015 Egypt (ME Forum) – A familiar scene recently took place in Egypt: yet another Coptic Christian soldier was killed in his (Muslim majority) unit.
Bishoy Nata’i Bushri Kamal, 21, was found dead in his military unit in Cairo under “mysterious circumstances.” The military told the family that he was found hanging, and thus committed suicide. However, Sami Bushri, the young Copt’s uncle and family spokesman, said: “We completely reject this [assertion that he had committed suicide].” Such an act, said the uncle, contradicts the disposition of the slain youth, who was often cheerful and content.
Moreover, Bishoy had recently gotten into a quarrel with a certain “Mustafa,” a fellow soldier, said the uncle. And although there are injuries to his neck, indicative of hanging, injuries were also found on his back and abdomen, as well as facial scars—all of which indicate that he was tortured and murdered, claims the family, which is pursuing the matter with a lawyer.
