Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi attended on Saturday a military funeral procession in 6 of October city for Police Officer Colonel Satea El-Noemany who died on Wednesday in the UK after a long struggle to overcome injuries he sustained in July 2013.

El-Noemany, who was the deputy commissioner of Boulaq Al-Dakrour police station at the time, was seriously injured in the face during violent clashes on 2 July, 2013 between the police and supporters of then-Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in Bein El-Sarayat neighborhood in Giza.

He had undergone several operations and received treatment abroad in Switzeland and the UK since his injury.

The funeral services were attended by El-Noemany's family, colleagues, senior police officers, and families of other fallen police and army officers.

El-Sisi has renamed Al-Nahda Square in Giza after the fallen officer.
