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.
