Egyptian activists campaign against solitary confinement

Egyptian rights activists are posting photos on social media showing themselves behind symbolic bars to demand an end to what they say is the expanding and illegal use of solitary confinement for political detainees.

The photos are part of a monthlong campaign launched on June 12, calling on relatives of detainees subjected to solitary confinement to file complaints to parliament and the chief prosecutor against the Prisons Authority.
