But this was before the arrival of a handful of supporters of General al-Sisi, the head of Egypt’s armed forces which ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi back in July. Anti-military demonstrators took offence to their presence and as we can see from these images available on the Citizenside website, tensions soon boiled over.
