Egyptian television reporter Mona Iraqi posted images of the raid on Facebook revealing “the biggest den of perversions in the heart of Cairo.”
According to Iraqi, her team had notified police “about what is happening in the baths” on December 3rd but Al-Qahira wal Nas television waited to broadcast their report “to give security institutions a chance to close down the baths.” She added that the group of men were “caught in the act during a group sex party” and “immediately transported to the prosecution with no clothes.”
She has promised to reveal “the whole story of the dens spreading AIDS in Egypt” tomorrow.
The arrests come as part the crackdown on LGBT rights under President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
On November 1st, eight men were sentenced to three years in prison after taking part in an alleged same-sex wedding which was recorded and posted to YouTube.
