Video: disturbing sexual harassment scene in Cairo’s Tahrir square

Published: Updated:

Egyptian police have arrested seven men for sexually assaulting women at celebrations marking President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi’s inauguration, after outrage sparked by a graphic video of the attacks which circulated on social networks.


The footage shows a crowd of men surrounding the young woman, who then stripped of her clothes and beaten, as police escorted her to an ambulance after the Sunday attack on Cairo’s Tahrir Square – the center of the protests which toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011.


Shared widely on social media websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, it appears to have been filmed using a mobile phone.
