CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's former top auditor on Saturday suffered serious injuries to his face and leg during an apparent kidnapping attempt that turned into a brawl outside his suburban Cairo home, his defense lawyers told The Associated Press. Lawyers Ali Taha and Tareq el-Awady said three men armed with knives jumped out of two cars that blocked the path of Hesham Genena's car. They pulled him out of his car and tried to force him into one of their cars when passers-by and members of his family rushed to his rescue and a brawl ensued, they said.
