The "Taharrush Gamea" Gang Rape Game

According to Amnesty International, the attacks last from a few minutes to over an
hour. Women who have described attacks in or near Tahrir Square say the men are
usually in their 20s and 30s. Victims have been aged seven to 70.

Separated from her friends by the crowd, or out alone, the woman finds herself
encircled by a large group of men who grope her breasts, genitals and buttocks.
Attempts are made to pull or cut her clothes off, and her body is pulled in different
directions as men move her through the crowd. Women regularly report digital
penetration of the vagina and anus. Attackers have used sticks, knives and blades,
and in several cases sharp objects have been inserted into the victim's vagina.

One student protester described how a group of men formed a ring around her in
Tahrir Square on 25 January 2013:

The last thing I heard was "don't worry," followed by screaming ... At first they tried
to rip my bag out of my hands; I then felt hands all over my body, tearing down my
trousers and long jacket; they were undoing its clips. ... They pulled my trousers
and pants down, but couldn’t get them all the way down because I was wearing
boots that they couldn’t manage to get off ... I felt hands touch me from all directions,
and I was moved, almost carried, inside the circle as people continued saying: "don’
t worry." They were saying that while violating me."

Perpetrators regularly claim to be helping the women when in fact they are attacking
them, which increases the difficulty for rescuers and leaves the women not knowing
who to trust. Women testify to having heard attackers say: "Do not be afraid; I'm
protecting you," or "you are like my sister, do not be afraid." People genuinely trying
to help find themselves being beaten and sexually assaulted too.

Volunteer groups in Cairo, including OpAntiSH (Operation Anti Sexual Harassment),
organize "extraction teams" who push into the circles wearing padded clothing,
helmets and gloves, and get the women out. Other OpAntiSH teams carry spare
clothes and medical supplies, operate a hotline so that the extraction teams know
where to go, and offer counselling and legal and medical help. They were called to
19 incidents on 25 January 2013 alone, and were able to respond to 15 of them.

Rescuers have described how assailants have set up makeshift tea stands in the
crowd; in one case boiling water from a tea stand was thrown over rescuers who
had formed a protective ring around a woman. During an attack in Cairo in 2013, the
attackers allowed an ambulance to reach the woman only when the driver told them
she was dead.

The mass sexual assault of women in public has been documented in Egypt since 2005.
Typically acting under the protective
cover of large gatherings, assailants
encircle a woman while outer rings of
men deter rescuers. The attackers
regularly pretend to be there to help the
women, adding to the confusion.
Women have reported being groped,
stripped, beaten, bitten, penetrated with
fingers and raped. The attacks have
been described in Egypt as the "circle of

minutes she was in hell and when she though she was going to die.

It happened suddenly.  Surrounded by thousands of excited men, the Arab
Taharrush rape game was in motion. Again she was in the spotlight - only this
time the cameras were hand-held cell phones and she was about to be gang
