In Pictures: 6 April High Court sit-in
Members of youth movement attacked by men with ‘knives and Molotov cocktails’
The 6 April Youth Movement claimed on Saturday night that some of their members were attacked during a sit-in outside the prosecutor general’s office at the High Court building. The group plan to protest outside the courthouse in New Cairo on Monday.
The group, led by Ahmed Maher, published a post on its official Facebook page claiming that the sit-in was attacked by “thugs using birdshot and knives[causing] numerous injuries in the ranks of the youth movement”.
The movement decided to hold a sit-in outside the court, which was announced in a statement published on Saturday evening. The group accused Prosecutor General Tala’at Abdallah of targeting “activists and the media” as well as being biased towards the Muslim Brotherhood. They also announced that they no longer recognise Abdallah’s legitimacy.
