19-year-old Malak al-Kashef, who recently had sex reassignment surgery, has not been heard from ever since she was taken by the Egyptian national security at the early morning hours of March 6. After police raided her house and forcibly took her, she was reportedly taken to an “undisclosed location.” Police denied they have her their custody. Human rights organization Amnesty International warned that al-Kashef may be at risk of torture and violence given Egypt’s animosity towards the Egyptian LGBT community.
