The Giza prosecution office ordered on Monday the release of a female teen who was accused of stabbing a minibus driver after attempting to rape her last month, on bail of EGP 10,000.
At the end of July, the prosecution renewed the detention of the 15-year-old Amira for 15 days pending investigations, over charges of “intentional killing and the possession of a knife.”
Dina El-Mokadem, Amira’s lawyer, told Daily News Egypt earlier that she submitted a petition to release the girl.
According to the investigations, the minibus driver attempted to rape Amira, threatening her with a knife. The girl fended him off, grabbed his knife, and stabbed him 13 times, El-Mokadem said.
