Egypt’s ruling military, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), apologises to “great Egyptian women” .
SCAF has issued an apology on Wednesday after a woman was stripped and brutally beaten when the army tried to disperse a sit-in in Tahrir on Saturday.
“The army council deeply apologises to the great Egyptian women following what happened during the latest demonstrations in front of the cabinet and the People's Assembly,” SCAF, which came in for fierce criticism lately, said in its 91st communiqué.
“We would like to stress on our full respect for Egyptian women and their rights to demonstrate and participate in the political life.
“All measures have been taken to hold the culprits to account,” it added in an attempt to defuse growing frustration among women, thousands of whom took part in a march on Wednesday to protest against SCAF.
Several army soldiers were videoed violently beating a woman, who was not identified, to the ground before kicking and stamping on her chest, stripping here in the process.
