Reuters piece up at the moment on the police-sodomy video that did the rounds a few weeks back. Elijah Zarwan gets in some good quotes on behalf of the human rights community, and Hisham Kassem pops in at the end to point out that, surprise surprise, apathy reigns.

However, the piece, which appears with a December 11 dateline, ignores a number of blog postings, including Hossam Hamalawy's, that suggest that not only has the victim been identified, but so have the perpetrators.

Time for Reuters to update this story.
