Forum Members Angered by Moroccan Police Beating Pictures

( )
Members of militant Islamist Internet forums expressed revulsion at pictures published by a Moroccan paper that showed a high-ranking Moroccan police officer beating a veiled woman carrying her baby on her back. The incident took place during a sit-in organized by the families of prisoners to protest against detention conditions in the prison of Okashah. A forum member going by the name "Abu Zubair the Algerian" offered a $10 thousand, which he says constitutes his lifelong savings, for the life of the policeman who was named by the paper.
