841 killed in Egypt's 2011 uprising – group

Cairo - An Egyptian rights group has released the most comprehensive list to date of the more than 800 civilians killed by security forces in the 18-day uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak last year, saying that 30 are still unidentifiable because they were badly burned or maimed.

The Tuesday report by the Arab Network for Human Rights Information says most of the 841 killed in the protests were between 20 and 30 years old, and include 15 females.

The list does not include 26 security forces killed in the violence according to official figures.

A government fact-finding mission last year put the total at 846 but did not provide details.

The report also lists 197 defendants, mostly security agents, facing charges in relation to the killings.
