Egyptian Protesters 'Operated on Without Anaesthetic'

Egyptian Protesters 'Operated on Without Anaesthetic'

The Egyptian military ordered senior doctors to operate without anaesthetic on protesters injured during demonstrations against military rule, according to extracts of a leaked report published in the Guardian newspaper on Friday.

The report into military and police malpractice since 2011, commissioned by President Mohamed Morsi, also found evidence that medical staff and soldiers attacked demonstrators inside the same Cairo hospital, the British newspaper reported.

Earlier leaks of the report accused the military of torture and forced disappearances during the uprising against the rule of long-time leader Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

The latest chapter deals with the treatment of protesters at the Kobri el-Qoba military hospital in Cairo in May 2012.

According to the Guardian, the investigation was told that a senior military doctor told doctors to operate without anaesthetic or sterilisation.

Another witness described how military doctors, soldiers and medics “assaulted protesters by severely beating them and verbally assaulting them”.

Egypt’s president promoted military commanders on Thursday in show of support for the army amid rumours of tensions between the Islamist leader and the once ruling generals.
