CAIRO: Friday Demonstrations organized by the April 6 Movement and other political powers against the dropping of charges of murder against former president Hosni Mubarak were dispersed by security forces using tear gas and birdshot, Al-Wafd reported.

Youm7 reported a suspicious device suspected to be a bomb in the downtown area, but the April 6 wrote on its Facebook page this was a rumor, and shortly after security forces began to disperse the crowd.

The Hisham Mubarak Law Center published on its Facebook page a photo to one of those injured, and said that 10 had been arrested.

These demonstrations were been called for by the movement, which, like the Muslim Brotherhood, was designated as a terrorist organization by the government earlier this year.

Group member Mohamed Moustafa told Youm7 last week that they are demanding “bread, freedom and social justice:” the same demands they raised during the January 25 Revolution.

As well as the releasing of the detained prisoners, and the annulment of the 2013 Protest Law issued by former president Adly Mansour.
