Protestors demand action over brutal beating at hands of Sudanese police

Protestors have assembled outside the Sudanese embassy in Cairo to demonstarte against the brutal beating in the country of a Sudanese woman by police. Earlier this week, a video depicting the woman being flogged circulated on the internet.

The video shows a woman in a voluminous cloak on her knees screaming and pleading with blue-uniformed policemen, identified as Sudanese, who take turns whipping her across the head and feet.

The video and its subsequent scandal have prompted an investigation by Sudanese officials.
