Egyptian: "Unfortunately, my young son wasn't killed by the IDF"

On January 29th, a 10 year old boy named Bilal came home from school in Egypt and saw an anti-Mubarak demonstration nearby.

He immediately went to join the rally, and then was shot three times by Egyptian forces in the abdomen, and he died.

The father wants justice, but he is emphasizing that Bilal had fervently hoped to become a martyr defending Gaza from Israel.

The father told Egyptian newspaper El Shorouk, "He had wished to die in defense of the children of the Intifada in Gaza. But, unfortunately, he was not killed by Israeli soldiers."

What a touching story!
