The Minister of State for Immigration and Egyptians Affairs abroad, Ambassador Nabila Makram, said that she was closely following the killing of two Egyptians working in the field of construction (armed carpenters) by a Saudi citizen, who had been shot dead, after it had broken out. An intense quarrel between them and the Saudi citizen turned into a criminal crime, while they were doing some construction work in a building owned by the Saudi citizen.
Ambassador Nabila Makram confirmed that the perpetrator had confessed to the murder and surrendered to the Saudi authorities, noting that the two bodies had been seized because of the continuation of investigations, as it was found that the two Egyptian citizens from the city of Nag Hammadi in Qena Governorate, one of them called "Adel Abdel-Imam Hussein - born in 1983 "and the other named" Ezz El-Din Mohamed Abdel-Shafi - born in 1967 ".
The Minister of Immigration called on citizens not to be drawn into any unaudited news on social media, stressing the immediate follow-up of any incident to citizens abroad by all relevant state agencies.
The minister said that such incidents are issued by an individual and do not reflect the Saudi community, which treats the Egyptians as brothers and sisters with whom they have historical ties, adding: "We trust the Saudi judiciary and the perpetrator will receive his punishment according to the laws governing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia."
