Billionaire Sentenced to Death for Murdering Pop Star

Egyptian billionaire and former political figure Hisham Talaat Moustafa has been sentenced to death for the 2008 murder of Lebanese pop star Suzanne Tamim. Yesterday (May 21) a Cairo court found Moustafa guilty of paying ex-policeman Muhsin Sukkari $2 million (£1.2 million) to murder Tamim in 2008. As the verdict was read out, several people in the courtroom burst into tears and one fainted, reports BBC News. Tamim was stabbed to death in Dubai last July shortly after she ended her relationship with Moustafa. The court heard that Sukkari gained entry to Tamim’s flat by saying he was working for the building’s owner. He killed her as she opened her front door. Suzanne Tamim originally gained fame in the Middle East after winning a ‘Pop Idol’-style contest in Lebanon in 1996.

Alternately, this blog could have been titled ‘Reason #4 Why I’ll Never Pursue My Dreams of Becoming a Lebanese Pop Star. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a sudden hankering for kabob.
