Police in Papua New Guinea have vowed to investigate the beating of a man by officers with iron bars.
A video of the beating appeared online yesterday.
The director of the police internal affairs directorate, Chief Superintendent Robert Ali, says formal charges will be laid against the policemen once they are identified.
He says police are empowered to use reasonable force, but the violence in the video was clearly not reasonable force.
Mr Ali has urged the victim or anyone who knows them to contact him.
