Egypt’s top prosecutor launches investigation into reports of student’s beating by teacher

Egypt's top prosecutor ordered an investigation on Wednesday to look into a circulating video that purports to show a teacher in a school assaulting a student in a severe beating.        
Prosecutor General Hisham Barakat ordered that prosecutors investigate the incident to find out the details surrounding it and take the necessary legal procedures, according to a statement. 
The incident is believed to have taken place during class in a school in Maadi, a neighbourhood on the outskirts of Cairo. 
In a separate incident in March, prosecutors referred a teacher to criminal court, after he was investigated for accusations of beating a pupil leading to the child's death.  
Initially, the elementary school student was taken to hospital unconscious but the child passed away after three days of battling injuries. This incident also took place in Cairo, in the Sayeda Zainab neighbourhood.
