Italian gov’t denies the US had provided intelligence on Egypt’s alleged involvement in Regeni’s murder

Italian gov’t denies the US had provided intelligence on the alleged involvement of Egyptian officials in Regeni’s murder: The Italian government denied the Obama administration had given it explosive evidence or actionable information on the involvement of Egyptian security officials in the murder of Giulio Regeni, ANSAamed reports. The New York Times’ Declan Walsh had said the US, under Obama, acquired evidence that Regeni was abducted, tortured, and killed by the Egyptian secret services in early 2016. The administration had then informed Rome, then under the Renzi administration. Italy had decided to send its ambassador back to Cairo earlier this week, prompting criticism from Regeni’s family.
