[Fab 2, 2013] A chilling video published by Anti-Sexual Harassment / Assault group in Egypt.
”It was sickening. They were dragging her through the street,” said the 29-year-old, who works as a human resources manager. ”I couldn’t imagine something so horrific, and something that fundamentally would keep women from exercising their right to assembly like anyone else. No one should be prevented from demonstrating.”
Such is the concern that the United Nations on Thursday demanded authorities to act to bring perpetrators to justice, saying it had reports of 25 sexual assaults on women in Tahrir rallies over the past week.
Extraordinary violence has been used in some of the attacks. Human rights campaigner Amnesty International says that some meet the definition of rape, including penetration with fingers and sharp objects.
