Family of slain Italian student demands strong response to Egypt

ROME - The parents of Italian graduate student Giulio Regeni, who was tortured and killed in Cairo, demanded on Tuesday a tough response from Rome if Egypt fails to uncover the truth behind their son's murder.
Giulio's mother, Paola Regeni, said she might release a photograph of her son's body to show the world what had happened to him in Egypt if his murderers were not revealed.
"I only recognized him because of the tip of his nose. As for everything else, it was no longer him," she said in the first news conference the family has given since Giulio's battered body was found in a roadside ditch on February 3.
