Abdu Gaafar, the man who set him self alight in front of Egypt's parliament building on Monday morning, said he was frustrated by security treatment.Yeah, sure.
He revealed that security authorities in the governorate of Ismailia, east of Cairo, refused to provide him with his share of subsidized bread for the restaurant he runs at the city of Qantara.
Gaafar suffered 5 percent face burns before nearby officers managed to put out the fire and take him to hospital, according to a security source.
But a medical source estimated burns to 60 percent of his body, concentrated on his hands and legs.
A security source revealed that Gaafar is being interrogated, to find out if "foreign hands" were behind his act.
