I am not sure I would take the unsubstantiated blog reporting from an axe grinder site at face value. On the other hand, Egypt is a police state with a habit of interference.
Nevertheless, may I suggest a very, very large grain of salt to be taken on claims from the "Watch" axe grinders.

Point well taken.
However I saw the story elsewhere than JW first, the NYT has already archived it unfortunately. The motive is under dispute apparently but I'd wager the local NJ police are poorly equipped to look at anything beyond the mundane.
