Egypt’s Casualties At 300

Egypt still facing large protests as death toll raises to 300.

Carol J. Williams –

Human rights advocates and monitors said Tuesday that they were told of death tolls as high as 300 from the unrest that has consumed Egypt for more than a week.

“Casualties have been mounting on a daily basis, with unconfirmed reports suggesting as many as 300 people may have been killed so far, more than 3,000 injured and hundreds arrested,” U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said of reports to the world body from nongovernmental sources in Egypt.

In a separate 95-page report, New York-based Human Rights Watch said it had verified 80 deaths at two Cairo hospitals, another 36 in Alexandria and 13 in the port city of Suez, all flashpoints of the confrontations between demonstrators and security forces.
