For American jailed in Egypt, a long wait for a court date - and charges

Mohamed Soltan, an American-Egyptian citizen, has been held in an Egyptian prison for almost seven months. He says he’s been tortured, stripped naked and beaten. He says he’s witnessed prisoners beaten to death, that he’s been subjected to forced surgery, and that much of his time has been spent in an overcrowded prison cell with no consistent running water. No formal charges have been brought against him.
