An Egyptian man convicted of stabbing a young woman to death outside their university in Mansoura last year has been executed on Wednesday morning.
Mohamed Adel carried out the attack on Nayera Ashraf, 21, in broad daylight outside the Mansoura University campus in June last year.
During Adel’s trial, the prosecution presented a compelling case supported by the accounts of 25 eyewitnesses. These witnesses, including students and university guards, provided crucial testimony regarding the murder.
Further investigations delved into the relationship between Ashraf and Adel, revealing a disturbing pattern of harassment and threats.
Testimonies from Ashraf’s friends and colleagues shed light on Adel’s persistent stalking behavior and his repeated threats towards her after she rejected his marriage proposal.
These revelations painted a picture of a troubled and dangerous individual whose obsession with Ashraf escalated to a tragic outcome.
The brutal incident drew widespread attention both within Egypt and internationally, shedding light on the issue of gender-based violence in the country.
Ashraf’s tragic death became a symbol of the challenges faced by women and the urgent need to address such acts of violence.
