Egypt: 7 men arrested for sexually assaulting female student during Tahrir celebrations
Reported by: Associated Press

Egyptian security officials say police have arrested seven men for sexually assaulting a 19-year-old student during celebrations marking the inauguration of a new president.
Another video clip that has triggered a storm of anger shows a TV reporter telling her anchorwoman in the studio that there were several cases of sexual harassment in Tahrir during the celebrations.
With a laugh, the anchorwoman said: "Because they are happy."
Sexual harassment is one of Egypt's enduring social ills, prompting the government to issue a law last week that criminalizes it.
