CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's justice minister warns the lynching of criminals in the streets by angry citizens signals "the death of the state."
His comments come a day after residents in a northern Nile Delta province killed two men in public after they allegedly stole a motorized rickshaw with a girl inside. Photographs showed the dead men hanging by their feet as thousands watched.
"The application of Islamic justice on outlaws by citizens and the cutting off of roads is one of the signs of the death of the state," Justice Minister Ahmed Mekki told the Turkish Anadolu news agency Monday.
In another sign of deteriorating security, a sword from a statue of the early 19th century Latin American hero Simon Bolivar was stolen near the heavily guarded U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
