Protesters in Tahrir Square caught a man believed to be a thug. They beat him up pretty badly and stripped him naked to make an example of him.

Other groups of protesters in the square objected to the brutal treatment, causing a dispute between both groups to erupt.

There has also been an argument over what the protesters should do with the suspect.

Over the past few days a number of thugs and thieves have been caught in the square and every time they release them as they refuse to hand them over to the police or military forces, against whom they are protesting.

But the same thugs tend to return to the square, so the protesters decided to hand this particular suspect to the Nadim Centre for Human Rights.
