Alexandria - He was released from prison accused of having planned and carried out the attack on New Year's Eve 2011 at the Coptic church of Saints Mark and Peter in Alexandria, Egypt, which caused 23 deaths and nearly a hundred wounded among the faithful who had gathered at the place of worship to participate in the midnight liturgical rite. We are talking about Ahmad Lutfi Ibrahim, The accused is now under house arrest. He must answer charges of terrorist attack and incitement to violence.
After almost six years, the dynamics of the massacre of San Silvestro in Alexandria are not at all clear. Already in the first hours after the attack, the official versions provided on how the attack was carried out differed from those who were talking about suicide attack and those who reported the use of a car bomb. Investigations conducted by the Egyptian Interior Ministry immediately followed an Islamist line of investigation, blaming an extremist group based in the Gaza Strip for the attack. After the start of the Arab Spring and the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, different reconstructions indicated the apparatus of the Egyptian Ministry of Interior as instigators of the massacre, as part of a "strategy of tension" aimed at increasing social alarm to back up the declining power of the same Mubarak.
