CWN Editor's Note: Father Arsanious Wadid, a 56-year-old Coptic Orthodox priest, was stabbed to death in Alexandria, Egypt.

The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar (located in Cairo), recognized by some Sunni Muslims as the highest Muslim authority, decried the attack and said that “homicide is a major sin that arouses God’s wrath and is punishable in the afterlife.”
