A man has died from his injuries after being tortured by Egyptian police for three days, officials have said. The officials ? who refused to give their names ? told foreign news agencies that Ahmed Saber Saad had been held on suspicion of drug possession. But state prosecutors ordered his release, saying there was insufficient evidence against him. The officials say that, instead, police tortured Saad for three days, before dumping him on the street in Giza. He died a day later. (BBC)
