'Tortured' Egyptian student's plight drawn by Italian street artist

arrow_upward PUSH

An Egyptian studying in Italy was detained when he flew to Cairo last week and his family and human rights groups say he has been tortured.

Now a mural has appeared near the Egyptian embassy in Rome showing student Patrick Zaky being comforted by Giulio Regeni, an Italian murdered in Egypt in 2016.

Regeni is seen hugging him, saying "this time everything will be fine".
