We don’t understand who would do this to her, she is very quiet and never gets involved in any problems. She was originally released from the hospital on the same day and once we got her home she started to deteriorate and so she was rushed back to the hospital,” according to quotes from Nottingham Post.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry released a statement saying that they are following the incident.
