Cairo – The Ministry of Endowments has directed imams and preachers to talk about Egyptians’ duties towards tourists during the coming Friday’s sermon on July 21.

The ministry took this decision after an Egyptian man had stabbed two German tourists to death and wounded four others at a popular seaside vacation spot in the Red Sea resort city of Hurghada.

In its statement, the ministry vowed that it would take legal action against imams, who do not abide by the theme of the weekly sermon.

The sermon should be between 15 and 20 minutes, the ministry noted.

It also urged Egypt’s imams and preachers to assume responsibility during this critical period.
