Egypt police get 10 years for beating man to death
FILE - In this Wednesday, June 6, 2012 file photo, an Egyptian woman holds a picture of Khaled Said during a silent protest marking the second anniversary of his death at the hands of Egyptian police in Cairo, Egypt. The Arabic on the poster reads, "Khaled Said, martyr of Egypt." An Egyptian court has sentenced two policemen to 10 years in prison each for the 2010 killing of the political activist in the port city of Alexandria on Monday, March 3, 2014. The verdict was the result of a retrial in the landmark case of the beating to death of 28-year-old Said, one of the sparks that ignited the January 2011 uprising that toppled Egypt's long-time autocratic ruler Hosni Mubarak.
