Human Rights Watch and security officials said Egyptian authorities stopped the executive director of the group– and another U.S. staffer– from entering Egypt on Monday. Their refusal preceded the release of a critical report by Human Rights Watch on mass killings by Egyptian security forces last summer. This is the first time Egyptian authorities have stopped staffers from the New-York based group from entering the country. Executive Director Kenneth Roth and Middle East and North Africa Director Sarah Leah Whitson were to brief diplomats and journalists on the findings of their investigation into the bloody events in July and August last year, following the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
