[Published: Wednesday March 11 2009]

Egypt army cadets attack police

Cairo, 11 March-(ANA)-Egyptian army cadets in plain clothes have been filmed pelting a police station with stones in a town south of the capital Cairo.

Mobile phone footage was posted by Misrdigital, a blog campaigning against police brutality and corruption.

One sequence showed the cadets trying to overturn a car, said to belong to the chief district police officer.

They were reportedly taking revenge for the alleged abuse by the police of one of their colleagues.

Newspaper editors say they received clear orders from the army not to publish any details of the incident. (ANA)
