Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has issued a decision to rename El-Nahda Square in Giza after late police brigadier Satea Nomani, who died on Wednesday in London while receiving medical treatment for injuries suffered in clashes with Muslim brotherhood supporters in 2013.

Nomani died at St Mary Hospital in London, where he was being treated for serious wounds he suffered during the dispersal of a sit-in supporting Islamist president Mohamed Morsi at El-Nahda Square in August 2013.

Nomani had lost an eye and part of his face during the clashes.

On Twitter, the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Ahmed Hafez released a statement mourning Nomani and hailing his sacrifices for his country.
