Egyptian media reported Sunday that a Dutch journalist was raped by several men in Cairo’s Tahrir Square  a few days ago.
Dina Zakaria, a journalist reporting for the “Egypt  25″ news channel affiliated with the January 25 revolution, shared the incident on her Facebook  page Sunday: “A Dutch journalist in Tahrir was raped by men who dub themselves revolutionists. Her condition is severe and she is hospitalized.”
Meanwhile, a state hospital issued a statement that the journalist was admitted after being raped by five men several days ago. She underwent surgery and has been released. It was also reported that Egypt’s Prosecutor General Talaat Abdallah ordered his staff to go to the hospital to hear the woman’s story and reveal the circumstances behind the violent attack.
Egyptian women face sexual harassment and assaults on a daily basis. During and after the revolution, there have been a number of case of foreign reporters who were sexually assaulted, such as Sonia Dridi and Lara Logan.
