A Christian merchant in Egypt had his throat slit by a suspected Muslim because the vendor owned a shop that sells alcohol.

The man killed Youssef Lamei Tuesday while he was sitting in a chair right outside of his market, according to Christian Today and The Clarion Project.

PJ Media, which cites Egyptian-based media outlet Tahrir News, also corroborates the incident, and provides images from a surveillance video showing the attack.


“The killing of my brother was planned and carried out accurately as the killer visited the shop many times before committing the crime and knew that my brother used to sit in this place,” Lamei’s brother Nasef told the International Christian Concern (ICC), according to Christian Today.

Nasef also said that his brother respected Muslims by closing down his shop during religious holidays like Ramadan.

“I’m grieving for the loss of my father; he was slain in front of my sight,” Tony Youssef told the ICC, according to Christian Today. “I’m sad that we live in a country that doesn’t have the security and safety … He was my father, friend, everything sweet in my life.”

Just last month, terrorists bombed a Cathedral in the capital of Egypt, killing roughly 25 people and wounding 50. The vast majority of the victims were women and children, according to The New York Times. (RELATED: In Just 48 Hours, Terrorists Kill More Than 200 Across Five Countries)
