Forensics Report from Suez

The Egyptian government’s official newspaper, Al Ahram, has published on its English website an article outline the results of an investigation carried out after the recent violence in the canal city of Suez.

The forensics team report uncovered that some of the victims in the violence of Suez were shot with live ammunition, from close range, and in some cases, from the back.

This is clearly reminiscent of the beginning of the revolution on Jan 25, and particularly on Jan 28, 2011, when violence shifted from rock hurling to a flat out street battle.
