Preacher rapes boy inside Egypt mosque
An Egyptian Islamic preacher raped his 12-year-old Quran student inside a mosque in the North African Arab country after seducing him into the workers’ room.
Police arrested the preacher after the boy’s father reported the incident at the mosque in Cairo and examination showed the boy was telling the truth.
Newspapers said the Sheikh, who holds a degree in Islamic law, lured the child into the workers’ room at the mosque, claiming he wanted to give him a new Quran lesson.
“The boy later rushed to his father crying and told him what the Sheikh did to him…when the boy recounted what happened, his parents were stunned and his father rushed to the police station,” the Egyptian Alyoum Alsabei daily said.
