Clashes continued through the night near Cairo’s presidential palace. Police dispersed petrol bomb-throwing protesters with tear gas and birdshot.
At least one protesters was stripped and dragged naked through the street by police “like a piece of meat.”

Reuters has more on the beating:

After eight days of protests that killed nearly 60 people, a video of one demonstrator stripped naked, dragged across the ground and beaten with truncheons by helmeted riot police has fired Egyptians to a new level of outrage.

Hamada Saber, a middle-aged man, lay in a police hospital on Saturday, the morning after he was shown on television naked, covered in soot and thrashed by half a dozen policemen who had pulled him to an armored vehicle near the presidential palace.

President Mohamed Mursi’s office promised an investigation of the incident, which followed the deadliest wave of bloodshed of his seven-month rule. His opponents say it proves that he has chosen to order a brutal crackdown like that carried out by Hosni Mubarak against the uprising that toppled him in 2011.

“Mursi has been stripped bare and has lost his legitimacy. Done,” tweeted Ahmed Maher, founder of the April 6 youth movement that helped launch the anti-Mubarak protests.

Another protester was shot dead on Friday and more than 100 were injured, many seriously, after running battles between police and demonstrators who attacked the palace with petrol bombs.

  1. The Muzzie Brotherhood at work. Our tax dollars at work. Sure, GIVE them 16 F16′s and 200 Abrams tanks. Barack HUSSEIN Obama, Mmmmm, Mmmmmm, Mmmmmmm.

  2. And we’re going to give them F-16s! Brilliant!!!

  3. arabs are never happy. They get rid of one ruler, vote another one in and now rioting again. But I like it, as long they are killing each other they will probably leave israel alone. But agree not good ideal to give them frontline fighters that they will use on israel.

  4. ++

    they acquired Morsi as president the same way we
    acquired Obama, as both are Muslim Brotherhood..

  5. I have alot of respect for these protesters – they are brave men. Morsi is an Islamic terrorist of the Muslim Brotherhood, and these Egyptians protesting have a lot to lose with Morsi in power.

  6. ++

    those are just snips of clips of what’s coming to US (or should i
    say they believe we have coming to US, as does their president,
    oh wait, he’s our president, and he’s done just about everything
    but say it, oh wait again.. /s)
