Rebuilding Egypt's police force

Restoring a sense of security for people in Egypt has proved difficult not least because the police there have reputation for brutality and violence.

Repairing their tarnished image is a crucial element to that task.

That job begins at the country's police academy, where a new generation of recruits is being trained.

The BBC's Shaimaa Khalil reports from inside the compound on the challenges facing the force as it tries to rebuild for the future.
