Egypt's chief prosecutor said he will seek the death penalty for the son of the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser and 10 others charged in a series of shooting attacks between 1984 and 1986 on U.S. and Israeli diplomats. Nasser's eldest son, Khaled Abdel Nasser, a 38-year-old engineer now in self-exile in Yugoslavia, and the others are charged with murder, attempted murder and attempting to undermine Egypt's internal security and relationships with the United States and Israel. Nasser's nephew, Gamal Shawky Abdel Nasser, a physician living in Britain, is among nine accused of complicity who face life sentences.
