Two Egyptian policemen have been jailed for 10 years for beating a blogger to death in Alexandria in 2010, one of the trigger events for the uprising that toppled President Mubarak.

Khaled Said had just posted a video allegedly showing police sharing the proceeds of a drug bust when witnesses say he was dragged from an internet cafe and beaten. His body was later found in a stairwell.
