From the Book of Esther:Egypt's Foreign Minister, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, confirmed on Wednesday the reports that there had been an assassination attempt on Vice President Omar Suleiman two weeks ago.
During a television interview, Aboul-Gheit said in that he himself had witnessed the shooting towards Suleiman as he made his way to a government meeting.
In those days, when Mordechai was sitting in the king's gate, Bigtan and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, of the guards of the threshold, became angry and sought to lay a hand on King Ahasuerus.
And the matter became known to Mordecai, and he told Queen Esther, and Esther told the king in Mordechai's name.
And the matter was investigated and found to be so, and they were both hanged on a gallows, and it was written in the diary before the king.
