Al-Jazeera Video: Egyptian policemen jailed over activist death

"An Egyptian court has convicted two policemen of beating an Egyptian man to death and sentenced them to seven years in prison, according to the lawyer of the man whose killing inspired the country's uprising.

Hafiz Abu-Saada, the lawyer, said the court convicted the two on Wednesday of manslaughter over Khaled Said's death in June 2010, rejecting the more serious charge of murder.

Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports from Cairo."
