Teacher beats 12-year-old pupil to death in Egypt because he had not done his homework...

A Cairo schoolboy died on Sunday after being severely beaten by his teacher who has now been suspended, Egypt's education ministry said as an inquiry was launched.

Corporal punishment is common in Egyptian schools, where official negligence has been blamed for the deaths in late 2014 of two children in accidents because of badly maintained equipment.

The 12-year-old pupil died on Sunday 'after being beaten by a teacher the previous day', a ministry statement said.

It said the teacher has been suspended and an 'urgent inquiry' started to determine the circumstances of the boy's death.

The child had head injuries and suffered a brain haemorrhage, forensics department chief Hisham Abdel Hamid told AFP.

The number of child abuse cases in Egypt has reached alarming proportions. Full story...
