 Copts of Al-Karam village withdrew lawsuit before court holds hearing tomorrow.

 
25 people were accused in the attacks that took place in May 2016, before the scheduled hearing of the case tomorrow. The Copts of Al-Karam village agreed to reconcile fearing threats and revenge of the defendants.
 
The court had sentenced three defendants to 10 years in absentia for stripping an old lady nude and dragging her in the streets to punish her son after a rumor about romantic relationship between him and a Muslim woman.
