Egyptian activists posted video on YouTube Saturday purporting to show Egyptian youths being thrown off a high wall situated on the roof of a building then being beaten in the head with sticks. According to Al Arabiya, the incident took place during clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.
The Middle East news agency writes that the perpetrators are Islamist supporters of Morsi.
In the video, four young men are shown on the roof of a building, appearing to seek safety atop a high wall on the roof. Other activists can be seen congregating on the roof below them, one of whom is fully bearded and holding a large black Al-Qaeda flag in his back pocket.
As the video progresses, those being described as jihadi supporters of Morsi throw objects at the youths. One ultimately reaches the upper wall and appears to push one of the youths off the wall, head first. A second man is briefly seen being flung off the wall moments later.
The purported supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood are seen beating the youths in the head with a stick as they are motionless on the roof.
While this was happening, hundreds of men are seen congregating at the entrance to the building, some banging poles with sticks and what appear to be swords, as gunfire is heard in the background.
According to Al Arabiya, one of the youths, Hamada Badr, was killed by the Muslim Brotherhood supporters. Mohammed Badr, the young man’s father, told el-Watan news, “Do you know the teen that they killed and disfigured his body and threw from the fifth floor is only 19 and four days.”
“All he was guilty of was that he was on the roof of the building, celebrating the ouster of Mursi. But the Brotherhood waged a war against whoever was celebrating Mursi’s departure!” Badr said. According to Al Arabiya, the elder Badr told el-Watan that his son was throwing stones at the pro-Morsi activists, and in response, they killed him.
The incident occurred in Alexandria’s Sidi Jaber neighborhood where violent clashes took place on Friday.
Dozens were killed on Friday during clashes nationwide between supporters and opponents of Morsi, after the military ousted Morsi from the presidency on Wednesday.
