The body of an Egyptian teacher - who was killed in Saudi Arabia late December - will return home on Sunday, a statement by the Emigration and Expatriates Affairs ministry read on Saturday.
 
According to the statement, the body of Hany Abdel-Tawwab, a 35-year-old teacher, will return to Egypt on an EgyptAir flight from Riyadh at 6am local time.
 
Abdel-Tawwab will then be laid to rest in his hometown of Fayoum.
 
The repatriation of the body comes days after Egypt had said it is following up on investigations into the murder of the Egyptian teacher in coordination with the Egyptian embassy in Riyadh.
 
Abdel-Tawwab died of injuries at a hospital in the Saudi capital after he was reportedly shot near the end of December by one of his teenage students following a quarrel.
 
According to local reports, a 13-year-old student, accompanied by his 16-year-old brother shot the teacher in the head.
 
The victim was transferred to Riyadh's Sulayyil General Hospital but succumbed to his injuries in the intensive care unit (ICU).
 
Saudi authorities have since then arrested both suspects.
