The Bagour killer who on Wednesday 16 September stabbed one Copt to death and injured two others has been detained and charged with premeditated murder. Usama Nasr Erban, a 35-year-old Muslim who goes by the name of Usama al-Bouhyagi, had attacked with a 40cm-long knife Abdou Gorgi, a 63-year-old Copt who owns a shop for car seat upholstery in the small town of Bagour. Bouhyagi repeatedly stabbed Gorgi to death and slit his throat. He then ran off on his motorbike to two neighbouring villages where he stabbed Adeeb Messeiha Boulos, a 40-year-old owner of a shoe repair shop, and Hany Barsoum, a 35-year-old blacksmith. Bouhyagi was caught by the police the following day and confessed his crime. He was pronounced sane by the medical authorities. However, he gave no reason for committing his crimes, and denied that he may have had accomplices.Father Stephanous Samir, deputy to the Bishop of Menoufiya, told Watani that the crime has shaken the Coptic community, since it appears to be utterly unreasonable. The three victims, he said, are related in no way to one another, live in different villages or towns, and have nothing in common apart from being Copts. Bouhyagi had no dealings with any of them, which gives the lie to the allegation by the Interior Ministry that the crime was because of differences over money matters.
