Mahmoud Mohamed Ahmed Hussein, a 19-year-old Egyptian prisoner of conscience, was beaten on 14 July by two prison guards who had stopped him from taking his belongings with him to a new prison, according to his brother, Tarek Tito. He was told he would be taken to a new prison, but remains held in the Appeal Prison in Cairo.
