He had disappeared 11 days before, and his body was found in a canal near where he lived in a large Christian village near Manfalout in Asyut. Samir Fekry, Ishak’s cousin, said the body was taken to the morgue for a post-mortem. ‘Ishak’s body had no eyes and there were signs of torture on different parts of his body,’ he said. The hospital is yet to issue the Forensic Medicine Report which establishes the cause of death.
