Minya s criminal court resumes tomorrow the case of stripping a Coptic lady off and dragging her in the streets by about 25 people.
In May 2016, a rumor had circulated in the village that the Copt Ashraf Ayad was having an illicit affair with the Muslim woman Nagwa Ragab; both in their early thirties. Ayad quickly fled the village taking with him his wife and four daughters. A Muslim mob, however, attacked his aged parents in their home, injured his father Danial Ayad, dragged out his near-70-year-old mother Suad Thabet to the street, stripped her and beat her up. The mob also attacked other Copts houses, burning six plus a Coptic-owned warehouse.
