Egyptian critic of military rule beaten in street
Cairo: Unidentified assailants have attacked a prominent Egyptian activist as she left work in Cairo`s Nileside headquarters of state television and radio.
A video posted on social networks showed a small crowd punching and kicking Nawarah Negm, and hurling abuse at her. The assault took place on Wednesday night.
Negm is the daughter of Ahmed Fuad Negm, Egypt`s best known satirical poet and a longtime critic of ousted leader Hosni Mubarak. She was a key figure in the uprising that forced Mubarak to step down last February.
Also a newspaper columnist and blogger, she has been sharply critical of the generals who took over from Mubarak.
Negm was questioned by prosecutors this week over her alleged role in deadly clashes last month between troops and protesters in Cairo.
