A senior Egyptian general has admitted to CNN that “virginity checks” were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring. According to the outlet, this is the first official admission after previous denials by military authorities. A senior general explained, “The girls who were detained were not like your daughter or mine,” the general said. “These were girls who had camped out in tents with male protesters in Tahrir Square, and we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs).” Incredible! Watch the footage.
