Cairo police beating: Egyptian government apologises


The Egyptian government has apologised after footage of a man being beaten by police outside the presidential palace was broadcast on state television.

The images proved to be a particular flashpoint amid days of protest against President Mursi.

However, the man later claimed he was being saved from protesters - something his son denies.

Aleem Maqbool reports.
