Italy to investigate five Egyptian security forces members suspect for Regeni kidnapping

Italy places five Egyptian security forces members under investigation for kidnapping Regeni: Italy’s prosecution to investigate five members of Egypt’s National Security Agency for their suspected involvement in the disappearance of Italian PhD student Giulio Regeni, Reuters reports. The suspects are not being looked at for Regeni’s murder, however; Italy has yet to accuse anybody of the student’s killing. The story is leading the conversation on Egypt in the foreign press this morning, with the UK’s Telegraph, Germany’s DW, and the New York Times all taking note. Egypt had rejected Italy’s request to add the names of Egyptian policemen to Rome’s “suspect registry” in connection with the crime, as we noted yesterday.
