On Palm Sunday 2017, Magid was selling palm branches with his wife and son by the gate of St Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria, Egypt, when a suicide bomber detonated his device near them, killing Magid’s wife, Hannan.

Later 18 worshippers and four police officers were reported killed, and 35 others injured.

Recently, World Watch Monitor visited Magid and his children, eight-year-old Youssef and six-year-old Maryam, and heard about their life after Hannan’s death.
