Amnesty International has accused nearly half of the European Union's members of fueling killings and torture among other abuses in Egypt through arms exports, in a report issued Wednesday.Amnesty said this flouted an EU-wide suspension of arms transfers to Egypt imposed after hundreds of protesters were killed in what it called a "show of grossly excessive force" in August 2013 .Items the EU member states shipped to Egypt included small arms, light weapons and ammunition, armored vehicles, military helicopters, heavier weapons and surveillance technology.Amnesty also expressed concerns about a further loosening or discontinuation of the EU suspension, following the US decision last year to resume military aid to Egypt to the tune of $1.3 billion annually.
