CAIRO: Corpses of the three Egyptian citizens, who were killed in Libya last week, arrived at Cairo International Airport Tuesday morning, Youm7 reported.
The corpses were received by members of the victims’ families along with a delegation of Coptic clergymen before they were escorted to be buried in their hometown of Tanta, 80 kilometers north of Cairo.
On December 23, unknown assailants broke into the house of Magdy Sobhy in the Libyan city of Sirte before they have killed him and his wife Sahar Talaat and have abducted their daughter Catherine, whose body was found dead days later.
The Libyan authorities in Sirte said that the family moved to Libya 14 years ago and used to visit Egypt in regular bases, but the visits ended after the security situation in Libya began to deteriorate in 2011.
In its statement on December 28, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry condemned the horrific murder saying it has been following up the situation and called on the Libyan authorities to open an immediate investigation into the incident.
The statement added that “such incidents will not affect the relations between the two countries.”
