Parents of missing Ingush students meet them in Egypt

The parents of three students from Ingushetia, who had disappeared in Egypt, managed to meet them in Cairo, the head of Ingushetia, Yunus-Bek Evkurov, has reported. Four of the five missing students are imprisoned there; the fate of the fifth one is still unknown.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in August 2018, the above five Ingush students were detained while training in Egypt. According to their relatives, they were kept in concrete cells without mattresses and normal nutrition.

"Parents of three students arrived in Cairo and met them. Alikhan Tsechoev, the permanent representative of Ingushetia under the President of the Russian Federation, has a meeting with Ikhab Akhmed Talaat Nasr, the Egyptian Ambassador to Russia, to clarify all the circumstances of the incident," the TASS quotes Mr Evkurov as saying.
