Review ordered in death that sparked Egypt revolt
Alexandria: An Egyptian court has ordered an independent review of disputed forensic evidence used in the defence of two policemen accused of beating a young businessman whose death helped trigger Egypt`s uprising.
The state forensic report concluded that Khaled Said died as a result of swallowing a packet of drugs. The finding has been widely ridiculed because photos of his battered body showed his face bloodied and his jaw shattered.
Said`s death last year in Alexandria captured the attention of millions in Egypt and helped spark the 18-day uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in February.
Thursday`s order is being welcomed by Said`s family and raises the possibility that the more serious charge of manslaughter could be added to the indictment against the policemen.
