Egypt rejects media accusations security forces behind killing of Italian student

CAIRO - Egyptian Interior Minister Magdi Abdel Ghaffar said on Monday he rejected media accusations that security forces were behind the killing of an Italian student who was found dead on a Cairo roadside with signs of torture on his body.
"There are many rumors repeated on pages of newspapers insinuating the security forces might be behind the accident. This is unacceptable. This is not our policy," he told a news conference.
