Police say 36 dead Islamist prisoners died from tear gas

Post by DJKeefy »

Egypt police say 36 dead Islamist prisoners died from tear gas.

Thirty-six Egyptian Islamist prisoners killed on Sunday during an attempted prison break died after suffocating on tear gas, the interior ministry said in a statement.

“Thirty-six of the prisoners died of suffocation and crowding after tear gas was used to stop their escape,” the ministry said.

The official MENA news agency reported that “unknown gunmen” had tried to aid the prisoners, who kidnapped a police officer.

Earlier, the interior ministry said the inmates rioted while they were being transferred to the north Cairo prison of Abu Zaabal, and that police were “dealing with the situation”.

The Brotherhood-led Anti-Coup Alliance, which is pressing for the reinstatement of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, accused police of killing the prisoners as they were being moved.

“The Anti-Coup Alliance obtained evidence of the assassination of at least 38 anti-coup detainees in a truck transferring them to Abu Zaabal prison today,” the group said in a statement.

“They were reportedly assassinated in their truck with live ammunition and tear gas fired from windows.”

A MENA said later that trucks carrying 612 prisoners came under attack by armed men, and “a number of prisoners” were killed in ensuing clashes.

Police and the military sent reinforcements around the prison, the news agency reported.

Everything with the MB seems to be ever changing and they are able to manipulate stats on a whim so hard to know what the correct answer is regarding anything concerning them.

And you think it'll stop at those 25 Dusak? It would be wonderful if it did, but somehow I doubt it. And actually the BBC are now saying 27.

Unfortunately I don't think it will stop there timetraveller. The police will always be considered a soft and legitimate target. But I have to wonder, given the problems that this area suffers from, why were they not carrying weapons to help protect themselves in case of such eventualities? The day before they shot one sniper and arrested three more not that far away from this incident so should have been on alert.

Some deaths are counted differently. Note this is an eye witness report on the ground and that, unlike government press releases, sources are prepared to be identified.

“At some morgues and hospitals, families say, doctors pressured by the police to keep the death toll low refused death certificates to those undeniably dead, offering “suffocation” as a cause of death to a teenager riddled with shotgun pellets and “suicide” for a man shot in the head.”

Until three days ago, Mohsen Sadek, a 30-year old accountant, was one of four brothers. Now, he is one of three. Alaa, 34, a doctor, was killed at the sit-ins that night, Mohsen said. Outside the morgue, he waited for Alaa’s body to be laid into a wooden casket.
...........

His brother died from three bullets, to the chest and throat, the coronary report said. What followed was a horror, too. First Mohsen dragged his brother’s body to the Sayed Galal hospital, where he said police pressured the staff not to take any corpses from the sit-in. Three hours of begging later, Alaa’s body was finally placed in a hospital morgue.
............

The reason, (refusal to issue Ministry death certificates) family members and friends say, was political - - the government doesn’t want to create a record of those killed by gunfire. Ali Khaled died of shotgun wounds, his autopsy report finally said. But not before Ihab Saleh, 32, and other friends were asked by a hospital to accept a ruling of suicide.

Hilal Abdel-Hamid, a 45-year-old garment worker, was asked by the El-Sadr Hospital to accept a report that said his friend, Khaled Hammouda, had killed himself. Hammouda’s charred body was identified only after Hamid recognized his t-shirt, made in the same factory where the two worked.
