Let’s take a moment to remember Amina and Sara, 2 girls that were killed by their father Yaser Abdel Said (an Egyptian immigrant in the U.S) for not practicing Islam and having boyfriends. Yaser has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.https://t.co/tvMR4nxuMI. pic.twitter.com/kiT50GzfqS— John Smith⚛ (@doofgeek4011) August 13, 2022

Glad they caught and sentenced Yaser Abdel Said. He already was locked up two years after being on the run for 12 years pretty much. I remember first hearing about his story on YouTube and how he was never caught.— Coco (@Dwarf_Coconut) August 14, 2022
Statement reveals that Said managed to escape arrest and jail for a long time, but he was finally held under the hands of the police on August 26, 2020, in Justin, Texas.
Said has a long history in abusing his two daughters, as one of the girls said her father physically and sexually abused them tried to kill them and he even took Amina to Egypt allegedly to arrange a marriage for her to a much older friend of his, but Amina rejected the marriage.
