Egyptian Top Prosecutor Killed in Bomb Attack

Preceding the horrible attacks in the Sinai today, Egypt's top prosecutor was killed in a bomb attack this week. Hisham Barakat was killed in a Cairo suburb after leading much of the charge against Islamist radicals over the last two years.

Monday's assassination of the 65-year-old Barakat came on the eve of the second anniversary of the mass demonstrations against Morsi that led to his ouster.
