UN to Egypt: Protect Rights of the Demonstrators


Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay of the United Nations called on the government of Egypt, Thursday, to protect the rights of demonstrators and prosecute all those who incite to violence, including members of the government.

Pillay said, "People have a right to protest peacefully and have the right not to be injured or killed because of it. The current government, which came to power on the heels of similar demonstrations, must be particularly sensitive and protect the rights of protesters."
