Sidi Aboul Ikhlas Al-Zorkany Mosque, which reportedly hampered a road construction, was demolished in Alexandria on Monday, with its debris seen scattered and heavy machinery working at the site.
The mosque was reported to had been built without a license, with Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi quoted in media on Monday saying that places of worship should be located at places assigned by the state.
The road where the mosque stood since 1985 is expected to be completed in several months. Sidi Aboul Ikhlas Al-Zorkany Mosque will reportedly be rebuilt after the road is finished.
