Protests return to Cairo streets

Issue No. 2432

Up to 3,000 people protested the outskirts of Cairo’s Tahrir Square last Sunday after a court dismissed charges of murdering protesters against toppled dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Student protests also erupted in many university campuses including Cairo and Alexandria.

The protesters faced tanks and police using birdshot, tear gas and tasers. Two protesters died after clashes in Cairo.

Chants recalled the slogan for Mubarak to go in 2011, “The people demand the fall of the regime”. But protesters also shouted against the current regime and president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
