No Torture in Egypt

A man deported from Canada to Egypt in September was reportedly tortured by authorities. The unidentified man went to Canada in 2002 seeking asylum. He reportedly made a refugee claim, alleging he was persecuted in his home country, but was deported in September. The man says he suffered injuries inflicted by Egyptian authorities during interrogations. He claims he was shocked, doused with water and beaten. Egypt's ambassador to Canada says no one is persecuted and torture is a very serious crime, which no one condones.
