"CAIRO (AP)— Amid a growing number of brutal attacks on women protesters in Egypt, one stood out: A mob of men on Cairo's Tahrir Square raped a 19-year-old woman with a sharp object, cutting her genitals in an attack that forced her to undergo emergency surgery.
The assault was one of the worst in a string of attacks over the past year in which women have been stripped, groped and raped at demonstrations in Egypt. This past week alone, while mass protests filled city squares around the country, more than two dozen new sexual attacks were reported — a wave that activists call the worst in years and describe as the darkest stain on the country's opposition street movement."
Sexual assault is a prominent part of muslim "culture".
