Family of Juvenile Facing Death Sentence in Egypt Appeal to Cameron to Raise Case With Sisi

WASHINGTON - The family of an Irish teenager facing a potential death sentence after getting caught up in protests in Egypt have appealed to David Cameron to raise his case with the Egyptian President during his visit to the UK.

President Sisi is expected to arrive in London later today (Wednesday), and will meet with the Prime Minister tomorrow. Since seizing power in July 2013, Mr Sisi has overseen a crackdown that has included the handing down of death sentences to thousands of activists, journalists, and others.
