Prime minister announces care center for revolution victims



Egyptian Prime Minister, Kamal al-Ganzouri, announced on Tuesday the establishment of a new center for the care of those injured during the revolution. The center will be under Ganzouri's supervision, while three of those injured will serve as board members.

Places for treatment will be specified in 52 hospitals in all governorates, particularly those with the largest numbers of victims, such as Cairo and Alexandria.

The government will give a monthly pension of LE1725 to the family of each martyr, Ganzouri said, adding that some families have also been awarded apartments.

Some 20,103 political prisoners have been released since February, and only 68 are still in prison, Ganzouri added.
