The disappearance of Amr Ali

Last month, the leader of one of Egypt’s best known opposition movements disappeared.

Amr Ali, 32, was taken from his home in Shebeen el-Kom in the Menoufia governorate north of Cairo at around 5pm on 22 September.Amr is the head of the April 6 Youth Movement, a group that was the central mobilising force behind Egypt’s 2011 uprisings, and that is often credited with having played a critical role in forcing the country’s former president Hosni Mubarak out of office.
