From the video:

This Video clip depicts the scene of a Sudanese girl receiving blows whip all over her body at a police station in Khartoum this week, a wave of condemnation by the Sudanese on the Internet and newspapers concluding that, what happened was exceeding the legal punishment and much amounted to physical torture and severe humiliation.

The film shows the police carry out the punishment of flogging with a whip on the Sudanese girl in front of a crowd of people. The Girl received blows whip all over her body from the legs, back, arms and head wildly and violently. The girl was crying and lying on the ground squirming in pain, begging the policeman to stop hitting her, before another officer assisted him and participated in the beating.
It appears through the person who filmed the scene, if not one of the policemen, he should be well known to them.

Hundreds of responses to the sites and electronic forums on the World Wide Web described the incident heinous and barbaric crime, and condemned to be in the name of Islam and Shariah.

For the record… Pew reported that majorities of Muslims in Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan and Nigeria say they would favor making harsh punishments such as stoning people who commit adultery; whippings and cutting off of hands for crimes like theft and robbery; and the death penalty for those who leave the Muslim religion the law in their country.
