Suez security chief had received reports that Ahmed Hussein Eid, an engineering student, died of stabbing wounds.
Al-Akhbar said that victim, a 20-year-old engineering student, was walking with his fiancée and cousin towards a minibus stop in the Arbaeen neighborhood, when three bearded men wearing white Galabeyas on a motorcycle stopped him.
They asked him about the girl accompanying him. When he told him that she is his fiancée, they warned him against walking with her because it is ‘haram, and it is an abomination.’ The student shouted in their faces and told them that he is free to do what he wants and it is none of their business.
One of the three men then stabbed him in the groin with a knife and they ran away with their motorcycle.

The page said that the killed student was standing with a woman and they were advising him not to do that.
