A young woman named Nayera Ashraf was killed in the Egyptian city of Mansoura on Monday, 20 June after a fellow student of Mansoura University violently attacked her with a knife outside the gate of the institution. According to the Egyptian Public Prosecution, the killer has been arrested.
The man, whose name was not reported by any official source, allegedly stabbed Ashraf multiple times upon her descent from a bus bringing her from the city of Mahalla.
