The “We Record” human rights platform announced that the Egyptian authorities executed 15 political detainees yesterday, which was described by the Muslim Brotherhood as “a message of terror to youth.”
The platform said that 13 of those executed belonged to the “One Soldiers of Egypt” case, and that the other two belonged to the case known in the media as the events of the Library of Alexandria.
The platform called on the detainees’ families to go to the “Zinhom” morgue to collect the bodies of their relatives.
Sources confirmed yesterday that the Egyptian authorities have executed only two of those arrested in connection with the events of the Alexandria sit-in dispersal in August 2013.
The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt condemned the execution of the death sentence against the two opposition youths, describing it as a “message of terror to youth.”
Earlier yesterday, human rights sources announced that the Egyptian authorities had implemented the death sentence against opponents Yasser Al-Abasiri (49 years) and Yasser Shukr (45 years).
Brotherhood spokesman Talaat Fahmy considered that carrying out the executions at this time when demonstrations are taking place against the Egyptian regime is a message of terror for young people, describing the conviction ruling as “politicized.”
