A shocking video showing the moment a naked Egyptian protestor was dragged across the ground and beaten by riot police has sparked outrage.
Middle-aged Hamada Saber was stripped bare and coated in soot before he was pulled across the floor by a team of around six helmeted officers and attacked with truncheons.
The brutal attack, which took place as police dragged Mr Hamada towards an armoured van close to the Presidential palace in Cairo was shown on television, to the horror of angry viewers.
