Egypt’s Coptic Christian patriarch dies at the age of 88

August 3rd, 1923 – March 17th, 2012

The Coptic patriarch suffered from back and kidney problems for years and repeatedly travelled to the United States for medical treatment.

“We lost today a great icon. His presence was crucial in repelling many threats against the country,” Amin Eskandar, a member in the People’s Assembly (parliament’s lower house), said in a phone call with state television channel Nile News.

“His patriotism and wise approaches to any issue were very helpful. May God compensate us for the loss of that great man.”
