Life imprisonment for Kerdasa church arsonist

The Giza Criminal Court sentenced Ahmed Hassan al-Kharrat, the man who burned the Kafr Hakim church in Kerdasa, to life in prison on Saturday.
His lawyer had requested his acquittal based on the claim that the building was not a church as such, but the private property of a man named Saad Helmy Ghattas, which annuls the charge of burning a place of worship.
