Video: Egyptian Police Beating Naked Protester

Egypt's Interior Ministry promised Saturday to launch an investigation into the beating of a naked protester by riot police, an incident which was caught on camera and broadcast live on television and has sparked outrage in the country. 

Many fear that the incident, which took place late Friday amid violent protests outside of the presidential palace, is likely to further inflame anti-government anger and demonstrations.
