A shocking video showing Egyptian police raping a male prisoner was posted on the Internet
by an Egyptian blogger in November 2006. The victim was Emad Mohamed
Ali Mohamed, known as Emad al-Kabir, a 21-year-old taxi driver. He had been arrested the
previous January after trying to stop an argument between police officers and his cousin.
