On January 25, the day that marked the 5th anniversary of the Egyptian uprising, a 28 year old student went missing.
His lifeless body was later found, battered and tortured, dumped by the side of a road.
The case has spiralled into a diplomatic incident because the victim, Giulio Regeni, wasn’t Egyptian.
He was an Italian PhD student living in Cairo, doing research into a movement that represents a challenge to the Sisi government’s hold on power – organised labour.
