“protesing supporters of Muslim Brotherhood (MB) attacked a police station in Nasr City district – eastern Cairo- and engaged in violent acts in Talaat Harb Street while trying to storm Tahrir Square” officials said.
This evening, dozens of MB supporters
marched from the “Al Eman” mosque in the district of Nasr City, destroyed a police station located near City Stars mega mall, chanting against the police.
Some people ran away from the mall and security officers intensified their measures around the mall, fearing clashes’ escalation. Furthermore, protesters used fireworks near Al-Ahly Bank scaring people off.
Other clashes erupted in downtown Cairo, when MB protesters tried to enter Tahrir Square. They engaged in street fights with the residents and shops owners in the area. Clashes were mainly in Talaat Harb Street, continued for a while, then protesters failed to get inside Tahrir.
There was no sign of security forces presence, Youm7 reported.
Earlier this week, MB supporters had called for mass demonstrations on Tuesday. Ever since the capture of the group’s main leaders, their calls for protests have received poor responds.
Little groups chant against the military and the police, often holding the pro-Morsi yellow flyer with the four fingers, referring to their sit-in Rabaa, which also means “fourth” in Arabic.
