A shopkeeper in Alexandria was murdered on the evening of January 3 when an Islamist snuck up behind him with a knife and slit his throat, according to Arab media reports translated by commentator Raymond Ibrahim. The murder was recorded on CCTV.

Adel Suleiman (48) murdered Joseph Lam’i (45) because he owned a shop that sold alcohol, according to an investigative report.

“The accused was not prompted by any political or criminal motives but had embraced takfiri [“radical”] thinking four years ago,” according to a preliminary investigation by the national security department of Egypt translated by Ibrahim.
