Egypt bars HRW head ahead of Rabaa killings report

Egypt has barred the head of Human Rights Watch from entering the country ahead of the release of a report on a mass killing of protesters, HRW officials said Monday. Kenneth Roth, executive director of the New York-based NGO, and HRW Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson were held overnight in Cairo airport before being denied entry, Whitson wrote on Twitter. “It’s official – shortest visit to Cairo ever – 12 hours before deportation for ‘security reasons’- the new Egypt certainly ‘transitioning’,” Whitson wrote.
