Video of police beating stokes anger in Egypt

1 protester killed, 90 are injured as thousands march

CAIRO — Egypt’s interior minister vowed Saturday to investigate the beating of a near-naked man by riot police, an attack that threatened to further inflame popular anger against security forces, but suggested that initial results absolve the police of direct abuse.

The beating was caught on camera and broadcast on television late Friday as protests raged in the streets outside the presidential palace. Video showed police trying to bundle the naked man into a police van after beating him.
