notice the young man admits he was not tortured physically

By the way did you notice that this young man admitted he was not tortured physically ?

He belongs to the upper middle class, returned from the Emirates where he was a student and blogger and arrested shortly before returning to Egypt over his blogging activities. Was held in Solitary confinement during the protests and blindfolded. But was never physically tortured. 

This is a touching interview and certainly the poor fellow did not deserve being treated the way he was but clearly to his own admission there was no deliberate intention on behalf of the authorities to harm him physically. And he was released after a few days. 

Oh the "Bloody" Mubarak ! ...
