(Sharona Schwartz) 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.
