Saber Helal Saber’s family says he was just passing by, but he was a Christian during a violent Muslim pogrom against Christians. And so he was doused with gasoline [2], set on fire and burned to death [3].

Saber was only 21 [3]. He died from suffering burns over 70 to 85 percent of his body [4].

Saber Helal Saber had been returning home with his fiance when they were set upon by Muslim rioters. When he tried to defend himself and his fiance against their attack, the attackers poured gasoline over him and set it on fire.

This was the scene at the morgue as his family members arrived. Saber leaves behind three brothers and two sisters.

A photo of Saber’s badly burnt body in the hospital attached to a breathing tube is available here [5], but it is quite graphic.
