The execution of a killer could be broadcast live on TV after he was found guilty of the murder of a woman who rejected him.

Mohamed Adel, 21, was given a death sentence after he was found to have killed his classmate by brutally stabbing her in Egypt.

The court appealed to Egyptian MPs in the country’s parliament to air to live the execution with the hope that it will put people off committing a similar crime.

In its letter, the court wrote: “The broadcast, even if only part of the start of proceedings, could achieve the goal of deterrence, which was not achieved by broadcasting the sentencing itself.”
