Thousands arrested unjustly in Egypt, IHH claims

World Bulletin/News Desk

Gulden Sonmez, an executive of Istanbul-based Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (IHH) claimed there are thousands of arbitrary arrests in Egypt.

Sonmez stated that Egyptians called international institutions to help protect their rights and said, "These people are restricted of communication rights. There are still some media organizations banned from broadcasting. We appeal to the human rights organizations. There are thousands of people arrested unjustly, people to whom soldiers' barrels are directed."

She added that Muslim Brotherhood members were not the only ones on the streets to support Morsi, as the 25 January activists who oppose any kind of military intervention also joined.

Sonmez expressed her fears for a possible repetition of the 'massacre' in Cairo on Monday, in which 53 were killed and more than 300 others were wounded in front of Republican Guards Headquarters in Cairo when troops opened fire on pro-Morsi protesters.
