Cairo, Egypt – Convicted of murder, inciting riots, destruction of government property and threatening cops, a four-year-old Egyptian boy was sentenced to life in prison this week. Although the boy was less than two years old during the civil unrest in 2014, he was convicted in absentia due to a clerical error and the court’s incompetence.
Born in September 2012, Ahmed Mansour Karni was swept up in an indictment listing his name along with 115 other defendants accused of participating in riots and demonstrations on January 3, 2014. Despite that fact that Ahmed was only a year and a half old at the time, he was reportedly charged with four counts of murder, eight counts of attempted murder, vandalizing property belonging to the Egyptian Health Administration in his home province of el-Fayoum, threatening soldiers and police officers, and damaging vehicles belonging to security forces. Convicted in absentia, Ahmed was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday.

This is the same kind of cowardice you see in all radical Muslim news, and it fits with their usual profile of using women and children as shields and suicide bombers as well.
This is nothing new or even a surprise.
Remember this story next time you read about some of the court decisions of your own country.

You will be saying next they all look alike also. Does make you wonder - apart form the religious connotations why everyone would want to share the same name because it robs one of their individuality?
