Caught in a revolution
Tripoli priest Hamdy Sedky Daoud
Hamdy Sedky Daoud is a priest at the Anglican Church of Christ the King in Tripoli. A native of Egypt, he studied at the Evangelical Presbyterian Seminary in Cairo and has a diploma from Chichester Theological College in England. During the uprising against Muammar Qaddafi, Daoud tried to address issues of power in Libya and the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that affected his congregation, most of them foreigners. Daoud was reached by e-mail.
