TORONTO - Nader Fawzy says he is a dead man walking.

The Cairo-born Toronto resident is one of seven Egyptian Coptic Christians sentenced to death in absentia Wednesday for their alleged part in making an anti-Islam film that sparked uproar across the Muslim world.

The father of three first learned in September of the impending charges being drawn up by the Egyptian government. They held him partly responsible for the video lampooning the Prophet Mohammed.
