Twenty-year-old engineering student Ahmed Said was stabbed to death on Sunday by bearded men in the Egyptian canal city of Suez while walking with his fiancée.

In Suez, where the ultra-conservative Salafist Nour party won the largest number of votes in last year's parliamentary polls, Said was attacked by three men with long beards and dressed in galabiyas – garb generally associated with religious Muslims – while walking with his fiancée near the centrally-located Arbeen Square.

"They shouted at him, demanding to know his relationship with the woman he was with," Said's father said in video testimony currently circulating on social-media networks. "And he replied that it was none of their business."

Provoked by Said's reaction, one of the men then reportedly stabbed him between his legs. The young man was then taken to Suez Hospital for treatment before being transferred to a hospital in nearby Ismailiya where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.

The victim’s brother told Al-Ahram's Arabic-language news website that this was not the first time for such an incident to occur in Suez.

"Another man was attacked earlier for refusing to divulge details of his relationship with the woman he was with, who turned out to be his wife," he said.

The head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s administrative office, for his part, condemned the act, referring to the culprits as "outlaws" and calling for a thorough investigation of the incident.

The begining of the end
You were dissatisfied with Mubaraks Regime,you were crying for democracy, the USA enforced your cries by ordering the military generals tantawi to hand over power as soon as possible, rushing a 30 year rule to end in 3 days after the elections. Now where is the USA, the brotherhood condemning this is a fake, while condemning it online, this is what they believe in. Its a cancer that will spread faster then you think, more murders will take place around churches in the night. Egypt is over, Egypt is no longer safe with these JErkoffs in power claiming theyre condeming violent act while supporitng these same people, they were one hand in tahrir, salafists and Muslimbrothers, they were beaten to death and tortured under Mubarak, but you we all wondered why Mubarak was so oppressive, now we know why.

These killers are paid by Saudi governments
I feel these killers are paid by Saudis to cause instability in Egypt and abort the revolution. They don't want the revolution in their country and are terrified of The Egyptian Revolution.
