Dozens of Salafis on Saturday stormed into the home of a woman in the Delta city of Monufiya and burned her furniture after accusing her of being involved in prostitution.
A group of Salafis surrounded her home, while another broke into it, kicked her out, set her furniture on fire and threw it out on the street, eyewitnesses told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
They threatened to kill her if she returned home again.
A security source told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the woman was involved in prostitution cases before but was alone at home when the group attacked.
This is the second such incident in one week. News reports had said that a group of Salafis assaulted a Coptic teacher on 20 March, claiming he rents out his apartment to two prostitutes.
