Downfall of the first martyr in Sohag with the bullets of Al-Sisi’s interior ministry
Radwan Abdel Mohsen
Groups of Nazarene* thugs under the protection of police tried to disperse demonstrators at the time in which a large number of protesters were flocking to the square, while a group of revolutionaries cut off Ikhmim Bridge and the governorate offices, where interior ministry thugs fired live ammunition and birdshot at them.
* النصارى el-nasaara loosely translated as “of Nazareth”, is an arguably linguistically neutral term which has acquired a derogatory meaning by the fact that firstly, Egyptian Christians rarely, if ever, use the term to describe themselves and secondly, it has come to be associated with sectarian rhetoric used by some Islamists. We have chosen to translate the term as “Nazarenes”.
