Egypt’s Takfiris Slaughter Sheikh Hassan Shehata
In an unparalleled event, four Muslims were slaughtered and brutally tortured by Takfiri extremists in Egypt's Giza. At least 3000 angry locals attacked the houses of Egyptians, killing four and injuring 32, just for being Shiites. The houses of martyrs were also completely torched.
The deaths came on the 15th night of Mid-Shaaban, a holy Islamic night for. A top Shiite leader, Hassan Shehata, had been visiting the local village of Abu Muslam in Giza, when angry locals stormed the house he was visiting, throwing Molotov Cocktails and dragging each family member out onto the streets.
Sheikh Hassan Shehata was dragged in the streets after being stabbed and killed. Images showed Shehata being beaten and kicked as his lifeless body was being dragged for show.
The other victims have been identified as the 55-year-old brother of Sheikh Shehata and 45-year-old Abd Al-Kader Hassanein Amr. The fourth victim has not yet been identified as his face is too badly disfigured.
Meanwhile, nearby CSF [Central Security Forces] and police officers failed to intervene despite being located meters from the incident.
After the victims were dragged in the streets, the locals dumped the bodies to nearby CSF vans, where the police officers simply piled them on top of each other.
Near-by police officers stood by as the incident unfolded.
This comes after Brotherhood leaders have been using inflammatory rhetoric against the Shiites in recent weeks.
Activist Bahaa Anwar stated "There are not less than three million Shiias who live in Egypt and last Saturday during the Syria solidarity conference attended by President Mursi...extremist Sheikhs insulted Shias and incited hate against them."

In response, liberal opposition leader, Dr. Mohammed al-Baradei, condemned the attack as "disgusting" and blamed it on inflammatory religious rhetoric. Al-Baradei called for the government and Egypt's top Islamic authority, Al-Azhar, to take all necessary steps to ensure that the incident is not repeated and that those responsible are brought to justice.
These comments were supported by the spokesperson of the Salafist Nour Party, who stated that "the Nour party does not accept the spilling of Egyptian blood or the dragging of it on the streets in such a way. The images shocked us all." The Nour party also condemned the attack and called for the perpetrators to be punished.
Meanwhile, the Egyptian Ministry of Interior has stated that an investigation has commenced.
