The Emergency State Security Court in Qena is expected to issue the verdict tomorrow on January 2010's Christmas killings. Three defendants are accused of  killing of six Copts and a Muslim guard on the Orthodox Coptic Christmas Eve, 6 January.

The shooting took place in Naga Hammadi, 60km north of Luxor, and is believed to be in retaliation for allegations that a Christian raped a Muslim girl. The cold-blooded murder caused outrage among people living in Upper Egypt and across the country.
