Face of Egypt's Eye Hunter: Protesters produce 'Wanted' posters after police officer 'deliberately blinds people with rubber bullets'
Wanted posters showing First Lieutenant Mahmoud Sobhi El Shinawi have gone up all round the capital Cairo after he was blamed for a series of horrific attacks in which a policeman tried to blind people.
The Egyptian officer was captured on video allegedly being congratulated by a colleague after shooting at least five demonstrators in the face during a riot.
He has been ordered by Egypt’s general prosecutor to submit to questioning over the suspected shootings.
A spokesperson for the country’s general prosecutor told CNN: ‘The Ministry of Interior is preoccupied by the latest events, but he will come in for questioning soon.’
And protesters, who call El Shinawi 'The Eye Hunter' want justice too and have sprayed graffiti spelling ‘wanted’ over images of his face, name and rank on Tahrir Square walls in Cairo.
