Looks like the child molestation scandal that galvanised the nation earlier this year has gone unnoted by some. A Facebook post rapidly going viral claims that a 10 year old autistic child has been raped. According to the post, the child was "brutally raped" and now suffers from anal fissure.

Ahmed, a student at an international school in Maadi, went home the day he was sexually assaulted with severe bleeding. In a phone interview with TV host Wael El Ibrashy, his mother claims that she rushed him to the hospital where the doctor told her what that her son had been raped by an adult. However, her son's acute autism prevented him from divulged the identity of his rapist. 

According to Sada El Balad, the ministry of education has launched an investigation into the incident and has determined - based on preliminary results - that the school is owned by a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group.
