Egyptian Semi-Official Newspaper : Refugees Killed Themselves
Just like in every incident against the Copts, the Egyptian media- sadly- is misleading the public and claims that the death of over 20 Sudanese refugees was due to a stampede and not because of police brutality!!

بادر اللاجئون بالاعتداء علي قوات الأمن وقذفها باسطوانات البوتاجاز الصغيرة والآلات والمتعلقات الخاصة بهم, وتداخلهم في أمواج بشرية لمواصلة اعتدائهم علي قوات الشرطة, مما أسفر عن مصرع عشرة معتصمين دهسا واختناقا تحت أقدام الجموع الغفيرة من اللاجئين
The refugees began attacking the security forces and threw small gas cylinders and belongings at them, and then they were woven into masses to continue their attacks against the police forces, which resulted in the death of ten strikers who were trampled and suffocated in a stampede under the multitude of refugees
