CAIRO: The investigation into the attack on opposition figure Ayman Nour continued Wednesday with the launch of a forensic medical examination of injuries he sustained following an attack last week.

Shady El-Adl, one of Nour’s assistants, said that the former Ghad party leader s injuries were examined on Tuesday by the head of the Cairo public prosecution office investigating the incident.

A sample of the damage to Nour s car was also taken.

Nour sustained first-degree burns to the face and head on Friday evening when two men on a motorbike pulled up alongside the car where Nour was sitting and set fire to an aerosol canister, before fleeing.

Nour – who recently announced that he would stand in the 2011 presidential elections – was unable to identify his assailants. In an interview with the Christian Science Monitor, Nour tied the attack with his announcement, saying, “it was definitely politically motivated.
