Islam Khalil was abducted in May 2015 by Egypt's security forces. He was harassed, beaten and tortured. For 122 days, his family had no information as to his whereabouts. They campaigned, alongside Amnesty. Today we are happy to inform Amnesty activists and supporters across the globe that the campaigning is working – Islam is free! Don't just take our word for it – Islam’s brother Nour thanks you all for your continued commitment.
