Soaad Mohamed’s funeral will be held at Musheer Tantawi Mosque in New Cairo in the after noon. Egypt’s Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb has reportedly cut short a visit to Luxor in order to attend the funeral.

The President’s late mother was once married to Sisi’s father, Said Hussein Khalil al-Sisi. The family grew up in Gamaleya, near Al-Azhar Mosque and where the famous Khan El-Khalili market is located.
