Women rally in Cairo to demand investigation into protester deaths

Female protesters gathered in downtown Cairo on Thursday demanding an investigation into the deaths of activist Shaimaa Sabbagh and others they say were killed by Egyptian security forces around the anniversary of the 2011 uprising. Sabbagh was killed during a march on the eve of the January 25 anniversary and another 25 – men and women – were killed on Sunday in demonstrations commemorating the onset of the popular revolt that toppled veteran autocrat Hosni Mubarak. The protesters assembled at the site of Sabbagh’s death near Cairo’s Tahrir Square, chanting “The interior ministry are thugs!” and holding signs with the word “Murderer” scrawled over Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim’s face.
