Three Egyptian women were stripped of their clothes and sexually assaulted by a mob of roughly 300 demonstrators in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. The women eventually found refuge among nearby pro-democracy protesters.
The Nov. 25 event matches similar attacks on American and French reporters, including CBS’ Lara Logan, and illustrates Islamist demands that women play a minimal role in public society.
The attack was reported in the country’s main newspaper, Al Ahram.
After being stripped, “the women ran to the nearby Mugamma administrative building in Tahrir Square… [the] assaulters followed them there, but the employees of the building closed the doors to block them out,” said another report in the English-language newspaper, The Egypt Independent.
“Dozens of other demonstrators, who had been holding a sit-in in the square, then beat the assaulters with sticks and rocks to disperse them, and took the women to their tents in the center of the square,” the report said.
The assault came amid a renewed wave of protests against a Nov. 22 declaration by Egypt’s elected Islamist president that dismissed the judiciary’s authority to curb his rule.
