Several protesters killed, dozens injured in Egypt crackdown

4 years ago14 views



Egyptian security forces have once again attacked anti-government protesters joining rallies in several cities, killing four protesters.

Dozens of others were injured as security forces fired tear gas and shots at protesters in the capital Cairo, Alexandria and the canal city of Suez. Several demonstrators were also wounded when thugs attacked supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in the northern city of Damietta. The clashes erupted when anti-government protesters joined rallies after Friday prayers to denounce plans by Defense Minister Abdul Fatah Sisi to run for president. They are also angry over a presidential law issued on Thursday that installs the defense minister as the supreme commander of the military council. Egypt has been the scene of weekly protests since the country’s first democratically- elected president was ousted last July.
