Dresden: City considering honoring al-Sherbini

The German city of Dresden is mulling ways to honour a pregnant Egyptian woman stabbed to death in a courtroom in the city, a killing which has sparked anger in the Muslim world, a spokesman said Tuesday.

"A meeting with town representatives and the Central Council of Muslims is set to take place next week to decide how we can honour her," Kai Schulz told AFP, adding discussions would also take place with the woman's family.

Dresden's foreign residents affairs officer Marita Schieferdecker-Adolph said: "We are thinking of naming one of the city's streets after her, but the last time we wanted to do that, it took 16 years."
