Currently there was a peaceful protest according to eyewitnesses who tweet in the scene that the police did not come near for fear to increase the people's anger more and more
Second the ministries of interior has claimed that 28 years old Khalid had some criminal record despite according to all his relatives and neighbors he was the good middle class boy next door with no political interest or criminal interest what so ever.
The MOI has claimed that he died from suffocation as hinted above , it supports the official MOI story that Khalid swallowed a bag of narcotics when police officers approached him and that he died of an overdose !! Regarding the photos in morgue , the ministry goes on and says the torture and abuse remarks in his head are actually the autopsy procedures !! The net café owner swore that it was not true and he is already to testify on what happened that day.
The ministry of justice will announce his complete autopsy by today and hopefully it will be much more realistic
Khalid now is dubbed by media and activists alike "The Martyr of emergency law"
Khalid's family has revealed what it believes the real motive of these agents to kill him , they believe that he was killed in revenge after the plain cloth police agents knew that he got a video that shows their involvement along with other officers in narcotics trade at the Sidi Gaber police station itself !! Khalid wanted to publish the video only but his relatives advised him not to do it.
Already today his family has released that video and it is making a lot of impact in Alex and outside it. You can see it below
I do not know what the MOI will claim this time especially with the huge anger in Alexandria which I admire.
Tomorrow activists will attempt to organize a protest in front of the MOI HQ in Cairo at 5PM Cairo local
time. You can find directions here if you want to participate.
It turned out that Khalid was a blogger , here was his blog , it was not a political one as you can see.It is not Khalid's blog , I really apologize to its owner
