Egyptian Army accused of extrajudicial killings in leaked video

  |   Ghana News / Nigeria News

The Egyptian army has been accused of carrying out extrajudicial killings in Sinai province, with a leaked video purportedly showing soldiers executing detainees and then staging the event to make it appear as if they died in a gun battle.

The video, which was posted online on Thursday by Mekameleen, an opposition TV channel based in Turkey, allegedly shows two blindfolded men being shot in the head by uniformed soldiers.

Last month, Human Rights Watch accused Egyptian forces of executing at least four men in January 2017 as they struggle to fight a local affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.
