A female demonstrator (pictured) was killed in clashes with Egyptian
police during a protest in central Cairo today January 24th on the eve
of the anniversary of the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak. A health
ministry spokesman said Shaima al-Sabbagh died of birdshot wounds, which
fellow protesters said were fired by police to disperse the march.
Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab said al-Sabbagh’s death was being
investigated and vowed that ‘whoever committed a mistake will be
punished, whoever he may be.’ (UK Daily Mail)
