The video clip sparked outrage

A number of people have been detained in Egypt after circulating a video on social media this week showing a teenager from South Sudan being verbally and physically assaulted.

The scene sparked a state of anger, which led to the South Sudanese embassy in Cairo to open an investigation into the incident.

The embassy concluded that the video, which appears to have appeared for the first time on Tik Tok, depicts Akok Kul, a 14-year-old asylum seeker and his family registered with the United Nations refugee agency in Egypt.

The incident was filmed last Friday in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, and the boy was shown insulted, beaten and forced to wash dishes.
