‘Torture’ victim jailed in Egypt

`An Egyptian man filmed being sexually assaulted in jail by police officers, has himself been imprisoned on a charge related to the same incident.

Imad Kabir was jailed for three months for “resisting authority”, a sentence that has shocked his defence lawyers.

Last year, Mr Kabir was seen in widely circulated footage writhing in agony as he was being sodomised with a stick. [..]

Several other videos apparently showing Egyptian detainees being tortured have emerged on the internet in recent weeks.

The authorities say they are investigating.’
