Egypt's interior minister apologised Monday for human rights abuses committed by police after an officer killed a driver with his service weapon in Cairo last week. Magdy Abdel Ghaffar also said that authorities were exerting "huge efforts" to investigate last month's torture and murder of Italian student Giulio Regeni, which media in Italy suspect to have been the work of Egyptian security services. "We apologise to every citizen who has been insulted," the minister said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Sharif Ismail broadcast live on state television.
