CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's public prosecutor said on Tuesday a police officer shot and killed woman activist Shaimaa Sabbagh, whose death last January during a protest marking the 2011 popular uprising caused an outcry.

The prosecutor referred the police officer to the criminal court, a rare action against the country's security forces.
