Prosecutor prods Egyptians to make citizen arrests

Published: 03.11.13, 15:21 / Israel News

A call by Egypt's top prosecutor encouraging citizens to arrest anyone breaking the law or committing a crime has stoked fears of vigilante groups taking over police duties at a time of growing tension and lawlessness.


The prosecutor's call for citizen arrests, made in a statement issued by his office late Sunday, comes at a time when a large segment of the country's police force is on an unprecedented strike, lawlessness and political turmoil appear to be deepening and a rapidly worsening economy is fueling a potential explosive situation.
