Footage and stills of a young Egyptian woman being beaten to the ground, kicked and stamped on as her hijab was torn off in Tahrir Square on December 17th. Moments before this video was captured, she had been struck countless times on the head and body with metal batons by a ten-strong military police mob before losing consciousness and slumping to the floor. Unable to escape, she was captured and beat again. "A few brave protesters came in and started hurling stones and that was the one thing that saved her from their hands," said Hassan Mahmoud, who witnessed the incident.
14 protesters have been killed in the last 4 days.
