British-Egyptian activist Alaa Abdel Fattah says he may die in prison from hunger strike

Alaa Abdel Fattah, an icon of Egypt’s 2011 revolution, who was imprisoned in 2019, has been on hunger strike for nearly six months, protesting against his detention.

Alaa’s pleas come as the country gears up for the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh in November.
