Muslim Brotherhood Parades Children in ‘Death Shrouds’ at Protest
The Muslim Brotherhood paraded children in Islamic death shouds at their rally this week.
Egyptian Streets reported:
Shocking footage has emerged of Egyptian children being dressed in white ‘death shrouds’ in preparation for their ‘martyrdom’ by pro-Morsi families in a large demonstration at Rabaa al-Adaweya.
The children were heard chanting pre-rehearsed lines and were seen carrying posters that say “I am ready to die!” during a short march.
This is not the first time that such images have emerged, however media and government attention over the issue remains spotty, as debates over politics have quickly overshadowed social problems plaguing Egypt.
Under both international and local law, using children under 18 years as a tool for politics and placing these children at severe risk of death or injury is illegal.
