CAIRO - Egypt's new president must punish security forces responsible for unlawful brutality and killing of protesters during the 16 months of army rule that followed Hosni Mubarak's ouster in 2011, Amnesty International said on Tuesday.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) handed power to the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursi in June after a period of rule in which at least 12,000 civilians were tried by army courts, over 100 protesters killed in clashes with army and police and thousands injured, according to rights groups.
