Protesters hold commemoration on site of Al-Sabbagh’s killing

Female protesters held signs commemorating Al-Sabbagh and Abu-Bakr, both of whom police recently killed in protests


Protesters held signs commemorating Shaimaa Al-Sabbagh and Sondos Abu-Bakr, both of whom were killed by police forces during demonstrations before the fourth anniversary of the 25 January Revolution.

Police forces stood alongside pro-ministry interior protesters who were also standing in Talaat Harb Square, according to a Daily News Egypt reporter who was present at the scene.

The commemoration was initially held to be a “women’s stand in the site of Shaimaa Al-Sabbagh’s killing,” but men had also joined which lasted approximately 45 minutes.

The initiative for the stand began through a small group of women, who did not belong to any political movements or parties, the event page for the stand said.

Police forces shot Al-Sabbagh as she stood in a small “protest of flowers” in Talaat Harb square commemorating the 25 January Revolution on 24 January while police forces shot Abu-Bakr as she marched in a protest in Alexandria the day before.
