A press conference held by Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Egyptian President Abdul Fatah al-Sisi ended in chaos on Wednesday when a young woman called out ‘murderer, fascist, Nazi’ at Sisi.

The press conference in Berlin was being held as part of a two-day state visit by Egypt’s controversial leader.

According to Spiegel, the young woman, who wore a hijab and was of Middle-Eastern appearance, was a medicine student from Mainz who had managed to get journalistic accreditation.

Egyptian journalists in attendance responded by rising from their chairs and shouting ‘long live Egypt’ in apparent support of the president.

A tweet by TAZ journalist Tobias Schulze showed the Egyptian press pack rising up to chant the protester down.

During the conference they had repeatedly applauded Sisi’s comments, an unusual occurrence in the somber environs of the Chancellery.

The young woman asked to be escorted from the Chancellery by police, citing fears of the hundreds of pro-Sisi demonstrators outside.

The visit is Sisi’s first to Germany and has been heavily criticized by rights groups due to the human rights record of the Egyptian state since he de facto took power in a 2013 coup.

Hundreds of supporters of the deposed Muslim Brotherhood have been killed by the Egyptian army and their leaders have been sentenced to death in mass rulings.
