Dozens of female activists protested on Thursday to honour Shaimaa El-Sabagh, a fellow activist who was killed earlier this week during a peaceful demonstration.
Marchers stood at the same place where El-Sabagh was shot, in downtown Cairo's Talaat Harb Square. They raised pictures of El-Sabagh, as well as of 17-year-old female protester Sondos Reda Abo Bakr and of 10-year-old Mina Maher, who were also killed in violent confrontations with security forces in Alexandria and Matariya this week.
Protesters on Thursday chanted against the interior ministry, accusing its forces of killing the late activist.
