Christian Syrian Family Slaughtered in Egypt

A Christian Syrian family living in Alexandria, Egypt, was barbarically stabbed to death Monday in their home in the al-Ibrahimya neighborhood, Arabic media are reporting. The family consisted of a father, 44, his wife, 35, their 6-year-old son, Michael, and the wife's brother.

After the murders, the house, where the family had been living for years, was set on fire by the murderers before being put out by authorities. All four bodies were found bearing several stab wounds and other signs of extreme violence. The wife and child had their throats slit, while the father appeared to have been stabbed to death.

Motive is currently unknown; the home was not robbed. According to some preliminary reports, they were killed because they may have been supporters of the Bashar Assad government in Syria, rather than opposition forces linked with Islamists attacking Christians.
