CAIRO: An Egyptian expatriate was attacked by a Jordanian national who allegedly tried to sever his genitals, the Egyptian’s brother told Youm7 Tuesday.

Khaled Eid Shalqami’s brother sent Youm7 video footage showing Khaled lying on a hospital bed, and gesturing at knife wounds as well as a gunshot in his leg.

“The attackers wanted to cut his genitals; plus they wanted to cut large parts of his body that resulted in serious injuries,” the brother said in the video.

The Egyptian ambassador to Jordan told al-Beit Bitak talk show on Ten channel that the investigations have been opened and the Jordanian authorities have apprehended the attacker.

He added that the Egyptian expatriate was at odds with his employer.

In October, another video surfaced of Khaled el-Sayed, an Egyptian employee working at a restaurant in Jordan, showing a moment when he was being assaulted by the brothers of a Jordanian parliamentarian over a delayed order.

In earlier November, an Egyptian was killed and two others, including a Kuwaiti, were injured when the accused Kuwaiti citizen hit them with a car outside a mall after a quarrel, Kuwaiti al-Watan newspaper reported.

In October, an Egyptian national working as a pastry delivery man in Kuwait, called Mohamed Salah, appeared in a video with his right eye bruised and head bandaged, where he described how he had been assaulted while delivering an order to a home.

Jordanian ambassador to Egypt Beshr al-Khasawna told Ammon news in July that the number of the Egyptian people in Jordan reached 400,000 persons.
