Last Night’s Talk Shows: Mansoura court issues death sentence for student’s murder

Leading the airwaves yesterday: The preliminary death sentence handed to the killer of Naira Ashraf. The university student’s murder at the hands of a male classmate made local and international headlines this week and reignited the discussion on violence against women and girls. The ruling will now be sent to the Grand Mufti for approval.

Most talking heads praised the ruling. Kelma Akhira’s Lamis El Hadidi said it demonstrated “swift justice” (watch, runtime: 3:11). Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Mousa said the trial was one of the fastest ever (watch, runtime: 3:13), with the ruling coming only days after the prosecution referred the defendant to court.

Masa’a DMC (watch, runtime: 3:19), Yahduth Fe Masr (watch, runtime: 2:43) and Hadith El Qahera (watch, runtime: 4:28) also had coverage.

Taking note of the sentencing in the international press this morning were Al Arabiya and AFP.
