Article summary: 

This Egyptian Gazette article talks about the call by Amnesty International for Egyptian authorities to stop the alleged intimidation of the family of Sayyid Bilāl, whose family claims that he was tortured to death while in detention.

Bilāl was suspected by police to have been involved in the Alexandria church blast. His family complained to the Chief Prosecutor in Alexandria, saying that not only was he tortured to death, his family members have been threatened since that time.

Furthermore, another young man is said to have disappeared while in detention at the same police station at the same time as Bilāl.
