Egyptian army doctor cleared over 'virginity tests' on women activists

• The Guardian

An army doctor has been acquitted of carrying out forced "virginity tests" on female protesters in Egypt last year, dealing a blow to activists and the women at the centre of the case.

Ahmed Adel was found not guilty of public indecency by a military court in Cairo. He was accused of performing the tests on seven women at a military prison who had been arrested in Tahrir Square on 9 March 2011.
