    An inquest is under way into the death of a Brazilian student who died after being tasered by police in Australia.

    Closed circuit television (CCTV) footage of the incident showed the police had tasered the man 14 times, continuing to do so even after restraining and handcuffing him.

    Roberto Curti, the student in question, died minutes later.
