Is there an Arabic word for irony?

Post by newcastle »

A number of Egyptian MPs said in separate statements they were “outraged” by what they called the wide use of excessive ‎force against black protesters in recent days in the ‎United States

MP Margaret Azer, deputy ‎chairman of Egypt parliament's human rights ‎committee, said in a statement that she was appalled by ‎the brutality of American police.
