An Egyptian court has jailed two policemen for seven years over what it called their “cruel” treatment of an activist whose death helped spark the revolt against Hosni Mubarak.

Khaled Said died in the port city of Alexandria in June last year after two plainclothes officers dragged him out of a cafe and beat him.

The case began before the uprising.
