Egypt policeman killed woman during uprising anniversary: prosecutor

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's public prosecutor said on Tuesday a police officer shot and killed woman protester Shaimaa Sabbagh, whose death in January caused an international outcry when footage of it spread online.

The prosecutor referred the officer to the criminal court, a rare action against the security forces, who have been accused by human rights groups of abuses against Islamists and liberal activists. The government denies the charges.
