SOHAG, Egypt (AP) - A man angry with fathering no sons stabbed four of his seven daughters to death as they slept and seriously wounded the other three, police said Monday.

Abdel Nasser Ibrahim, 47, a muezzin, or mosque prayer caller, in the Sohag provincial town of Tima, 345 kilometres south of Cairo, repeatedly stabbed his seven sleeping daughters with two knives in a rampage that lasted several minutes, a police official said on condition of anonymity.

Killed were Samar, 15; Isra, 10; Fatima, 8; and Zeinab, 7. The screams of the three wounded daughters alerted neighbours to the pre-dawn crime and they later contacted police.

Ibrahim's wife of 18 years left the house before the killings to go and stay with her parents following an argument she had with her husband over failing to give birth to a son, the official told The Associated Press.

Police arrested Ibrahim who later claimed to have stabbed his daughters during a moment of temporary insanity because he feared they would one day become promiscuous. Police also quoted neighbours as saying Ibrahim had not allowed his girls to attend school.

Ibrahim burst into tears during his interrogation before being transferred to the prosecutor's office for further questioning, the official said.

Southern Egypt is the most conservative part of Egypt, where education for girls has only recently been improving because of a government campaign.

He should have stabbed his *****. Cause obviously that's the only thing he can blame. Not the girls.

Again another good reason that Muslims shouldn't be allowed to enter Europe.

The doctrine of a certain 7th century child molesting desert pirate regards women as absolutely inferior. Marx said that religion is opium for the people. I say Islam is as dangerous as heroin.

I must have missed the part which says to kill your children if they aren't the gender you prefer in the 3 times I've read the Quran. Actually, it calls the old pre-Islamic Arab practice of leaving newborn daughters out to die ignorant and sinful. This no doubt still goes on in much of the Arab world and also is causing a major problem of gender imbalance in Hindu India.

Another good reason why Islam is dangerous to the welfare of women.

Poor girls. :(

Sickening indeed. Reminds of this Khan guy in Toronto who slit his own young daughter's throat for "making him angry".

LG, no many things that are a part of Muslim practice stem back from pre-Islamic Arab traditions and not from the Quran. For example rising against infidels was originally encouraged most likely to channel the original warlike characteristics of the nomadic Arab tribes into the Islam. Hmmm...Christianity anyone?;) Perhaps this is why we should say no Arabs should be allowed in the West, not "just Muslims". Being a muslim does not necessarily refer to your race anymore. Arab traditions have their place in the Middle East, not in Western nations.
