An acquaintance of the woman discovered the body. Ayman Abdullah at the local police station told the newspaper that murder is suspected.
Police technicians have, among other things, found a cloth soaked in chloroform tied around the woman’s head, which could indicate that she was drugged prior to the killing.
The woman was a pensioner and has been living in Egypt for the past few years. The Swedish embassy in Cairo is following the case closely, Expressen writes.
