Destination Europe / Egypt 2013

According to the Amnesty International report, published on the 17th of October, Egyptian authorities are systematically arresting dozens of Syrian and Palestinian refugees, detaining them for long time in awful hygienic and health conditions, therefore forcing them to look for money in order to buy a ticket to Turkey or Lebanon or, alternatively, they have to sign to be sent back to their own countries. All that without taking into consideration the potential serious risks that may occur to the refugees coming back to their countries. The obstinacy of the authorities, the hostile and unfriendly environment that Syrians have been experiencing in Egypt since the month of July- when they were accused by the media to support the Muslim Brotherhood-.
