Yesterday, security forces also arrested 37 Kefaya and April 6th activists in Kafr El-Sheikh for their demonstration calling for the release of students Sara Rizk and Omniyya Taha who are under detention for 15 days on charges of distributing publications that call for hampering the state’s interests, public harm, and disturbing order.
