Eman’s younger sister Shaimaa Selim has affirmed that Eman is showing major improvement and was cooperating with the doctors during the treatment. She added that the tussle in India had stressed Eman out. . “Whatever happened in India had stressed her. A salon team did her makeup today. To this, Eman, with kohl-rimmed eyes, sporting a red T-shirt and a headscarf, replied: “But I am pretty,” Shaimaa said.

Her leg muscles are too weak to support her weight and physiotherapy is necessary. But we are still not sure if she can walk,” Dr Yassin Shahat was quoted as saying.
