Police killing sparks Egypt protest

Alleged killing of young man in Egypt puts country's emergency law under scrutiny.

    Egypt's chief prosecutor has ordered an investigation into the death of Khaled Saeed, a young man allegedly killed by police in the coastal city of Alexandria.

    Activists and family members say the 28-year-old was tortured to death for possessing video material that implicates members of the police in a drug deal.

    The allegations of Saeed being brutally murdered by police triggered protests in Alexandria and Cairo, the capital.
