Meagan McElroy at 12:00 AM ET

On May 19, 2011, Amnesty International (AI) released a report finding that at least 840 people died and more than 6,000 were injured during the protests that resulted in the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. In the report, AI urged the new Egyptian government to address alleged human rights violations by the country's security services during the revolution. Egypt's transitional government continues to face allegations of human rights violations as the country holds parliamentary and presidential elections.
