Egypt: Student detained and tortured after protest: Mahmoud Hussien
Mahmoud Hussien, an 18-year-old student, has been held in detention without trial for 293 days, pending investigation. He is facing several trumped-up charges, including protesting without authorization. He was subjected to torture and coerced into making a “confession” on videotape. He is a prisoner of conscience and must be released immediately and unconditionally and all charges against him must be dropped.
