 An activist in Egypt who is starving in jail needs medical help

< p>

Egyptian prison authorities have provided medical assistance to imprisoned activist Alaa Abdel-Fattah, who this week stepped up his hunger strike and stopped drinking water. The prisoner took such a step, demanding release. He said he was ready to die. According to the lawyer, he was allowed to visit Abdel-Fattah. He went to the defendant today. It is specified that the activist has not eaten or drank anything for five days. The nature of the medical intervention is unknown. The family fears that the prison authorities will force-feed Abdel-Fattah, which would be tantamount to torture.
