Egypt fears rise of 'morality vigilantism'

Police arrest three suspects in what may have been religiously motivated attack on university student.

    Egyptian police say they have arrested three suspects after the stabbing of a university student who was sitting in a Suez park with his fiance.

    Authorities say the assailants acted alone. Even so, the attack has sparked concerns over the presence of self-proclaimed morality vigilantes.
