Nov 26, 2014 RABA'A SQUARE MASSACRE Egypt blames Muslim Brotherhood for Rabaa clashes

A fact-finding committee set up by the government in Egypt has blamed the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters for violence last year that led to the deaths of hundreds of people after former president Mohamed Morsi was deposed from power. Security forces used bulldozers to uproot the protest camps after the Interior Ministry warned it would deal firmly with protesters acting "irresponsibly". Fadi al-Qadi from Human Rights Watch told Al Jazeera, the report overstated the role of the protesters.


Aug 14, 2014 RABA'A SQUARE MASSACRE A year after Egyptian police killed at least 817 people, none of those responsible have been brought to account.




Egypt's Rabaa deaths 'crime against humanity'

A year ago this week, the Egyptian police and army moved in to clear supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi who were gathered at Rab'a al-Adawiya Square. In a new report, Human Rights Watch is accusing Egyptian forces of committing what probably amounts to crimes against humanity.


Aug 11, 2014 RABA'A SQUARE MASSACRE [HRW] - The systematic and widespread killing of at least 1,150 demonstrators by Egyptian security forces in July and August 2013 probably amounts to crimes against humanity. In the August 14 dispersal of the Rab’a al-Adawiya sit-in alone, security forces, following a plan that envisioned several thousand deaths, killed a minimum of 817 people and more likely at least 1,000.




A government-appointed human rights group has criticised Egypt's police over a deadly crackdown on protesters. Hundreds of people were killed when security forces moved in on supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo's Rabaa Square last August. Egypt's Human Rights Council, a group appointed by the country's authorities, found that armed individuals infiltrated what was largely peaceful protests. The group's report blames the police for not ensuring a safe exit for protesters to leave the area.
