Egyptians remember ‘face of revolution’
Thousands attend memorial for Khaled Said, whose death galvanised protests against Mubarak.
Published On 7 Jun 2012
In Alexandria, thousands of people have marked the second anniversary of the death of a young man which helped galvanise protests against Hosni Mubarak.
Egyptian Khaled Said, 28, was beaten to death in Alexandria in June 2010 with his body barely recognisable.
The act of brutality led to the creation of an anti-torture Facebook page entitled “We are Khaled Said” which, in turn, helped crystallise Egypt’s political movement which eventually toppled Mubarak from power.
