Seven men arrested for assaulting women during Egypt’s new president’s inauguration

Seven men, aged 15 to 49, were arrested in Cairo for sexually assaulting women during the inauguration of Egypt’s new president.

The Interior Ministry made the announcement yesterday. A video of one of the assaults was posted on YouTube on Sunday showing one of the victims are naked and with injuries on it being dragged through a large crowd at night towards an ambulance.

Egypt passed new laws last week which punishes sexual harassment with a minimum of six months in jail or fines valued at 3000 Egyptian pounds. It is believed that the seven men have been arrested under this new law.
