On May 25, 2021, an Italian court ordered that four Egyptian security officials must stand trial on October 14 over the kidnap, torture, and murder of an Italian student whose body was found in Cairo after he disappeared in January 2016.  The body of Giulio Regini, a postgraduate student at the University of Cambridge, was so badly disfigured when it was found that his mother could scarcely identify him.[1]
