Security assaults Al-Masry Al-Youm reporter in Hurghada

Hurghada State Security assaulted Al-Masry Al-Youm reporter Mohamed Suleiman on Saturday while he photographed officers burning state documents on the town's outskirts, the victim said.
Suleiman went to the location after local residents informed him they witnessed security burn thousands of files and documents there. The reporter fled, he relayed to Al-Masry Al-Youm, after four officers threatened to kill him. They proceeded to chase him and strike him on the head with a bottle, causing Suleiman to faint.

The officers then put him in a car and escorted him to a private clinic. There medical staff treated Suleiman and he regained consciousness.

The Hurghada public prosecutor has ordered an investigation in the incident, sources said.

In the past two days, local residents have stormed security offices throughout Egypt after reports spread accusing officials of burning incriminating documents.
