CAIRO — Egyptian women are world number one in abusing and beating their husbands, according to UN crime statistics.

Egypt is followed by the United Kingdom and India.

According to data from the Egyptian Family Court, 66 percent of wives who abuse and beat their husbands apply for divorce in the Family Court.

Meanwhile, husbands who suffer abuse often have no another way to defend themselves from the violence except by prosecuting their wives, with cases reaching 6,000.

According to the data, wives don’t only use their hands in beating their husbands, but use implements such as pins, belts, weapons, kitchen tools and shoes, with some even using sleeping pills to be able to beat and burn their husbands.
