Egypt: No protection - systematic torture continues.
In Egypt everyone taken into detention is at risk of torture. Torture victims include political activists, people arrested in connection with criminal investigations and people who have been held in custody without being accused of any offence. In this report, Amnesty International has documented allegations of torture or ill-treatment from people from all walks of life, including children, students, computer experts, drivers and housewives. Some torture victims are particularly vulnerable, including refugees and those detained because of their sexual orientation.
