US police officers fired for 'beating'

Five police officers from Alabama in the US have been sacked after a video was made public, apparently showing them beating an unconscious suspect ejected from a car after a chase.

The incident was captured on a patrol car videotape that did not surface publicly for a year.

It shows police pursuing Anthony Warren's vehicle on 23 January 2008.

It overturned on a ramp, throwing out Mr Warren, who lay motionless as officers ran towards him.
