A rights group says Egyptian authorities have arrested a lawyer who assisted the family of an Italian graduate student killed under suspicious circumstances during a police crackdown in Cairo.

Dublin-based Front Line Defenders says on Tuesday that Ibrahim Metwally Hegazy was arrested at Cairo International Airport two days ago while traveling to Geneva for a UN meeting on enforced disappearances.

He and his son provided legal services to the family of Giulio Regeni, a researcher who disappeared on January 25, 2016 in Cairo and was later found tortured to death.
