Here's another great video report by the independent Egyptian media collective Mosireen.
Apparently there has been a sharp rise in the detainment of children in recent months, and they are being treated pretty bad.
"They had beaten us so badly and I was so scared that I told them I had stolen 10 pounds*", says Zeid Taysin Mohammed Ahmed, a 12-year old kid that got arrested. "They fed us in buckets. Beans and rice in buckets."
Human Rights lawyer Amr Imam feels that "this is a message from the authorities. This is proof that they are waging a war on children."
Mohienour El Masry, activist with the No To Military Trials campaign, thinks the government is detaining and torturing children because "they want to break a whole generation".
