EGYPTIAN prosecutors have ordered the detention of four people in connection with the murder of Italian student , Giulio Regeni.

The four are relatives of an alleged criminal gang , which officials suspect , killed the 28-year-old student.

The gang leader’s wife, brother, sister and brother-in-law are being held for concealing a criminal and hiding stolen goods, according to Reuters.

The group is said to be specialised in abducting foreigners while posing as policemen.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry said the gang, whose four members were all killed in a police shootout had Regeni’s bag and passport.

But Italian officials and Regeni’s family have disputed the claim describing it as an outrageous setup.
