Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Egypt murder taxi driver, burn car after he hits protester

Muslim Brotherhood supporters murdered a taxi driver and set the car on fire, allegedly he ran over a female protester.

Ahram reports that the taxi driver – identified as both Mohamed Othman and Mohammad Badr depending on the source – was accused of striking a female protester with his car after the crowd would not let him pass.

The woman is in critical condition, according to a pro-Brotherhood Facebook page called “Al-Azhar University in Mansoura.”

The coroner’s report, according to Al Ahram, said the taxi driver had a deep stab wound to the chest in addition to others on his neck and back.

Public executions have occurred sporadically in Egypt in the past three years. Citizens appear to have become bolder in taking matters into their own hands because of a security vacuum following the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak 2011, Ahram notes.

The driver’s father condemned the Muslim Brotherhood in an interview with Al Arabiya News, calling them “infidels” who know nothing about religion. The father also said he thinks his son was attacked because of an image of Egypt’s army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi displayed on his car.

Security forces are investigating the murder, and currently have at least nine suspects.
