Egypt’s president has promised justice for a Christian grandmother who was stripped naked and paraded through the streets by a Muslim mob.
The 70-year-old woman was attacked in her village south of Cairo after rumours spread that her son had an affair with a Muslim woman.
“They burned the house and went in and dragged me out, threw me in front of the house and ripped my clothes,” said the woman, who requested anonymity. “I was just as my mother gave birth to me and was screaming and crying.”
The crowd burned down her house and six others during the attack on May 20 in the village of Karma in Minya province, south of Cairo.
