He Had Her Throat Slit

I had blogged about a murder of a famous Arab female singer (here) and now, someone seems to be charged:

...Hisham Talaat Moustafa, one of the nation’s largest real estate developers and a member of President Hosni Mubarak’s governing National Democratic Party...49, whose net worth was estimated at more than $800 million in 2007, was charged with hiring a former police officer, Mohsen al-Sukary, to kill Ms. Tamim in what authorities said was an act of media have reported that he was infuriated with Ms. Tamim after a failed love affair. When her body was found on July 28, she had been stabbed and her throat had been slit.

...The case drew attention because it involved a Lebanese diva, the rich emirate of Dubai and rumors that a politically connected Egyptian was involved. It was front-page news everywhere in the region except Egypt, where newspapers were prohibited from reporting on the case.
