Almost three years after the ousting of Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak, human rights campaigners are warning that cases of police brutality are still occurring, unchecked.
A grainy video circulating widely on social media appears to show a blindfolded man being whipped with a leather belt.
The identity of his abuser is unclear, but police admit the man was arrested in the southern province of Minya. They say he was involved in a deadly attack on a police station.
