"Several thousand demonstrators have taken to the streets of the Egyptian city of Alexandria to protest against alleged police brutality. They were led by the former UN nuclear chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, now a campaigner for reform in his homeland. It is the latest in a series of protests sparked by the death earlier this month of 28-year-old Khaled Said. Witnesses say police beat him to death on an Alexandria street. Officials say he suffocated after swallowing drugs. Pictures of his injured face have appeared on social networking websites, sparking condemnation from human rights groups."
