Sub-Saharan Africa refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants in Egypt are being killed, imprisoned and forcibly returned to countries where they are at risk of serious human rights violations. This document calls on the government of Egypt to ensure that security forces use force only in accordance with relevant human rights standards; to cease all forcible returns to Eritrea in line with UNHCR guidelines; to ensure that Egypt respects its obligation to allow asylum-seekers meaningful access to asylum procedures and for other measures to prevent such human rights violations.
