Egypt security forces step up sexual violence since Mursi’s ouster

Egyptian security forces have stepped up sexual violence since the military overthrew the country’s first freely elected president in 2013, a human rights group alleged on Tuesday. Victims include members of NGOs, students, women and those perceived as “endangering the moral order,” the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) said in a report. It was not possible to confirm the allegations. Spokesmen for Egypt’s Interior Ministry and military were not available for comment despite several attempts to reach them.
