Italy holds Egyptian security responsible for the "kidnapping and killing" of student Giulio Regeni  A committee of the Italian House of Representatives issued a report blaming Egyptian security for the kidnapping and murder of doctoral student Giulio Regeni in Cairo in 2016.  A committee of the Italian Chamber of Deputies has held Egyptian security forces responsible for the killing of doctoral student Giulio Regeni in Egypt in 2016.  This came in a report on the murder of Regeni, revealed by the investigation committee, on Wednesday. According to the Italian news agency (ANSA), the committee stated that "responsibility for Regeni's death rests with officials of the Egyptian National Security Agency."  The committee stated that the public prosecutors in the capital, Rome, who are investigating the murder, "revealed everything from the circumstances of the accident, from the kidnapping of Regeni to his death under torture."  The final report of the commission stated that "Egypt must bear its responsibility in this incident."  The Italian Regeni (28 years old) was a graduate student at the University of Cambridge, and was conducting research in Cairo to obtain his doctorate, and then disappeared for nine days, after which his body was found bearing signs of torture on February 3, 2016.  Maurizio Massari, the Italian ambassador in Cairo at the time, stated that he saw traces of torture on Regeni's body.  On December 10, 2020, the Public Prosecutor of Rome, Michele Prestipino and Prosecutor Sergio Colaiocco, presented before the Italian Chamber of Deputies information to the Commission for the Investigation of Crimes that they had reached important results in the investigation.  He added that Regeni was kidnapped by members of the Egyptian National Security Agency. On May 25, the Public Prosecutor's Office in Rome called for the trial of 4 high-ranking Egyptian officials, alleging their involvement in the murder of a doctoral student.  On November 14, an Italian court began the trial in absentia of Major General Tarek Saber, the former head of the National Security Agency, Colonel Asser Kamal, the former head of Cairo's escort investigations, Police Colonel Hisham Helmy, and Major Sherif Magdy, of the Egyptian General Intelligence.  The Italian court suspended the trial, citing its "fear that the suspects might not know that they are accused, which would render the proceedings void."  Relations between Cairo and Rome were severely strained, especially in light of Italian media accusing the Egyptian security services of involvement in the torture and murder of Regeni, which Cairo has repeatedly denied.   French newspaper: Macron described Johnson as a "clown" in a meeting with his close associates  What happened between French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson? Did he call him a clown? A number of British newspapers, including The Independent , reported news circulated by the French newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné, according to which French President Emmanuel Macron, during a private meeting with his advisers, described British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as a "clown".  This comes after talks between the two leaders last week, in which they discussed the escalating row between Britain and France, days after 27 migrants drowned while trying to cross the narrow sea passage between the two countries in the worst tragedy of its kind in the world's busiest shipping lane.  The French newspaper said Macron had told aides that Johnson was serious about private conversations with him, but that he appeared to be more difficult in public.  According to the newspaper, Macron said: "Johnson privately apologized for making France a scapegoat for the issues of small boats in the Channel and fishing."  Macron's comments to his confidants came after Johnson tweeted a message to Macron asking him to "take back all the migrants who crossed the Channel."  Macron had publicly responded at the time, that Britain must deal "seriously" with the migrant crisis, or else it would remain excluded from discussions about ways to curb the flow of migrants fleeing the war and the hardships of living across the English Channel.
