Rights groups criticise U.N.decision to hold conference on torture in Egypt

Human rights activists on Thursday criticised a United Nations decision to hold a conference in Cairo on torture with an Egyptian state organisation.


"It's illogical for a country where torture is systematic to host a conference on torture," said Mohamed Zaree of the non-government Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies.


Egyptian authorities have repeatedly denied allegations that its security forces engage in torture.
