Australian police taser video sparks anger

The unarmed man was tasered 13 times by police after he refused a strip search

There has been anger in Australia over a newly released video which shows an unarmed Aboriginal man being tasered 13 times by police officers.

The incident occurred in Perth in 2008, and has been released as part of a report on the use of taser guns by the Western Australian police.

The state’s premier said the video had damaged the reputation of the force.

The state attorney general said the government would consider new guidelines on the use of the devices.
