Campaigners call for truth over death of Cambridge student

Video report by ITV News Anglia's Russell Hookey

Campaigners from the group 'Amnesty International' have been in Cambridge calling for more action over the death of a PHD student from the City.

Giulio Regini is believed to have been tortured and murdered while on a university project in Egypt.

His body was found by a roadside on the outskirts of Cairo.

Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner is one of those campaigning for answers and says Giulio is one of hundreds of people in Egypt who've faced human rights abuses or been killed.

Guilio's case has been highlighted but sadly there are other people who have lost their lives and there are other people who are languishing in Egyptian prisons.
