The Egyptian regime has tortured an Italian student to death. The body of student Giulio Regeni was found in a ditch outside the Egyptian capital Cairo, on 2 February.
That was nine days after he was reported missing on the anniversary of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.
His body had more than 30 broken bones, as well as burn marks. Regeni was studying in Britain at the University of Cambridge.
Italian interior minister Angelino Alfano said Regeni had suffered “something inhuman, animal-like and unacceptable violence”.
This highlights the wider repression of thousands of activists, in particular those of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Egyptian activists defied the regime’s authoritarian ban on protests by gathering at the Italian embassy in Cairo to show their respect for Regeni.
