Egypt’s Ministry of Education has told privately-owned DotMsr that it has formed a committee to investigate a video that showed a teacher repeatedly slapping and hitting a young student in the middle of class.

The video, which was released on Facebook, shows the teacher hurling insults at the student, which included insulting his parents, while slapping him and hitting him in front of other students.

The teacher repeatedly hits the student as he interrogates him for “lying” about not attending a private lesson.

The incident reportedly took place in Bab El-Shaareya School in Cairo and has resulted in anger across social media. According to social media users, the teacher, identified as Khaled Salah, is known as “the Ghost” at the school. He has been accused of abusing other children throughout his career.

Egypt’s Ministry of Education said that it is in coordinating with Cairo’s Security Directorate to investigate the matter and bring the teacher to justice.
