A military court in Egypt has acquitted an army doctor accused of carrying out forced "virginity tests" on women protesters.

Ahmed Adel was cleared because the judge found contradictions in witness statements.

The case was brought by one of the women, Samira Ibrahim, who said the "tests" took place after they had been detained during protests last year.

Demonstrators gathered outside the court to protest against the ruling.

Writing on her Twitter account, Ibrahim said the verdict had stained the honour of Egypt and she would carry on until she had "restored Egypt's rights".
