Regime is Killing Egyptian Opposition Politician Ayman Nour
Opposition Leader’s wife, Gamela Ismail, said today that opposition politician Ayman Nour was taken to a prison hospital after his health deteriorated on the eighth day of a hunger strike in protest at being detained on forgery charges.
“Nour, a runner up in September's presidential election, is a diabetic and doctors said the hunger strike could lead to a coma and eventually death as his blood becomes more acidic, compromising his vital organs.”
“Ismail said doctors were insisting they correct the imbalance in Nour's blood with fluids administered intravenously. She said he intended to continue to refuse to eat, but is considering the fluid replacement.”
This is the destiny of many people who declare their opposition to the regime. Most of the so-called opposition parties and the Muslim Brotherhood have done deals with the regime so they are immune.
