Video: Very disturbing, very tough to watch anti-military-rule protesters beaten in Tahrir Square, Egypt NSFL

Amnesty International has said Egypt's military rulers have "completely failed" to fulfill their promises to protect human rights.
In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty accused Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces of adopting oppressive tactics used by the ousted regime of Hosni Mubarak, including targeting critics, banning critical media coverage and torturing protesters.
The military council took control after Mubarak's fall in February.
The report comes after three days of clashes between security forces and protesters calling for a transition to civilian rule. At least 33 people have been killed in those clashes.
The group called on the military council to repeal the Mubarak-era "emergency laws", and protect human rights.  [AP]
