Egypt police officer on lives lost

Police brigadier says lack of police training led to loss of many lives.

    Egypt paid a huge price, in terms of lives lost, for the revolution.

    However, a Brigadier with Cairo's police, told Al Jazeera in an exclusive interview that many lives could have been saved if police personnel had undergone correct training for riot control.

    The government says 365 people died, but scores of people are still missing.

    Andrew Simmons reports from Cairo.
