An Egyptian court has sentenced a police officer to 15 years in prison for the killing of a protester during a peaceful demonstration in Cairo in January.
The Cairo criminal court found 24-year-old police lieutenant Yassin Hatem Salahedeen guilty of manslaughter of 32-year-old activist Shaimaa el-Sabbagh.
Video footage of the incident showed Sabbagh collapsing in a colleague’s arms with her head, chest and back soaked in blood after a masked policeman fired birdshot in her direction.
Rights lawyers and witnesses have said the police hampered efforts to save her life by preventing an ambulance from passing through the cordon.
