Over 160 people were killed due to state violence in 2012, including 10 who were tortured, Al-Nadeem Centre for Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture revealed in its 2012 summary report.

The year was divided into six months under the rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces after former president Hosni Mubarak was ousted, and six months under President Mohamed Morsi following his election in late June.

The report documents 163 deaths in 2012, the majority of which occurred in February during the Port Said Stadium massacre that killed 74 Al-Ahly football club supporters.

Police and the military have jointly killed 15 people in clashes during protests and 23 by gunfire in confrontations inside neighbourhoods. A further 12 people were shot dead on the street by police or the military. Police killed 12 people, including three children, at road checkpoints.

Ten people died under torture in 2012. Seven died in police stations, one in the custody of the military, and one at the hands of campus security on a university campus.

An elderly woman was run over by a police vehicle and six people died in prison, allegedly due to mistreatment or neglect. The Presidential Palace clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi left 11 dead.

A further total of 43 unidentified bodies brought in by police were found in morgues across the country.

Al-Nadeem’s 70 page report blames SCAF and Morsi for the deaths and notes that Morsi claimed he would end such practices prior to his election.
