The killing of Dr Rania Fouad, a recently qualified doctor who was working in one of the makeshift field hospitals treating injured protesters near Tahrir Square on Tuesday 22 November underlines the brutal nature of the war that Egypt’s generals are willing to wage against their own people.
Rania was working in the hospital when it was attacked by the police with tear gas. She passed out from inhaling the gas and according to eye-witnesses the police then prevented her companions from reaching an ambulance and she later died.
