A Brutal Crime...

We are all in a state of shock today after hearing about the savage and brutal murder of two frail, elderly sisters in their home in front of Luxor Temple last night. We had just seen them in December when we took some Christmas cookies to the house.
Daughters of former MP under King Farouq killed in Luxor Palace


  1. A despicable and senseless crime!

  2. Yes, I still can't get my head around it. We attended the funeral yesterday (such tiny coffins!) and went to their private mausoleum for the interment, which was a strange experience. The cemetery is about four or five feet below street level with no stairs. They pushed the coffins through a small metal door, closed the door and then proceeded to brick it up. There have been break-ins and desecrations there before, another thing I can't get my head around.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
Salaam aleikum!
