An Egyptian owner of a bakery attacked his wife and six children with a knife after Suhoor and stabbed them until they were all dead.

The man tried to self immolate after the heinous crime to avoid punishment.

Security sources said that the killer, who resides in Al Gharq village of Atsa district in Al Fayoum governorate, went to his bakery after killing his wife and children at home and tried to set himself on fire. But the people at the bakery rescued him and took him to the police station.

Investigations have been launched to determine the cause of the crime.  

Boy tortured to death

A couple of weeks ago, a 14-year-old boy, Saleh Tamer Ali, was killed after being allegedly tortured by a worker and three owners of a poultry slaughterhouse, where the boy was working.

In 'Mit Suhail' village of Minya Al Qamh, Sharquiya governorate, Egypt, the perpetrators reportedly tortured the boy by beating and burning until he died, Egypt’s local media said.

Saleh was orphan, as his father died 7 years ago, and he was living with his aunts and uncles moving between their houses.

Abdulmajeed Ali, Saleh’s aunt’s husband, told media that he had received a news that the Al Sa`dyeyen Central Hospital had received the body of boy transferred by two owners of the poultry slaughterhouse, where he was working.

“I went to the morgue to recognise the body, which bore burn and bruises marks. We learned later from the forensic doctor that the burn marks on his body were just couple of hours old. He was bruised because of the beating, meaning the child was subjected to a torture and burned just two hours ago,” Abdulmajeed added.
