Court calls for execution of twisted student killer to be broadcast on live TV

An Egyptian court has called for the hanging of a 21-year-old monster who stabbed a student to death when she turned down his marriage proposal to be broadcast live on telly.

Mohamed Adel, 21, had been found guilty of the murder of his university classmate Naira Ashraf and had been sentenced to death for the brutal killing.

But in an extraordinary move, the court has now called for his execution to be aired.

In a letter to the country’s MPs, the court said: "The broadcast, even if only part of the start of proceedings, could achieve the goal of deterrence, which was not achieved by broadcasting the sentencing itself."

Chilling footage showed Adel attacking Naira as she got off a bus at Mansoura University, in the north of the country, on June 20 to sit her final exams.

During the brutal crime, Adel could be seen punching her in the head and then jumping on her and stabbing her repeatedly in the neck when she fell to the ground.

After he slit Naira’s neck and she died on the spot, passers-by seized Adel and prevented him from escaping.

It later emerged that the madman had stalked Naira and had resolved to kill her after she’d snubbed his marriage proposal.

His death sentence – which can be appealed – was confirmed on July 6 after having been preliminarily handed down on June 28.

The twisted killer’s lawyer Farid El-Deeb said: "We still have 60 days to challenge death sentence against Adel."

El-Deeb is well-known in Egypt and was famously the lead defence lawyer for late ex-president Hosni Mubarak.

The last time capital punishment was aired in Egypt was when state television broadcast the 1998 execution of three men who had killed a woman and her two children at their home in Cairo.

Hanging is the usual method of execution for civilian convictions in Egypt.
