CAIRO, Jan. 25 — Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s (MB) headquarters in Ismailia governorate was torched Friday as massive demonstrations were held nationwide to mark the second anniversary of the 2011 unrest that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak, state TV reported.
In Egyptian governorates like Ismailia, Suez, Alexandria, Bani Swaif and others, hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered since early Friday, calling for the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi and the current government.
Violent clashes erupted in Alexandria, with protesters throwing stones at the security forces while the latter replying with tear gas, leaving at least nine people injured, according to the ministry of health.
Earlier Friday, hundreds of thousands of protesters flooded to Cairo’s iconic Tahrir Square. Clashes between protesters and security forces are still going on.
“Down to the MB guidance,” “Down to Morsi,” “Oh Morsi step down like Mubarak,” the demonstrators chanted.
Clashes also erupted in other downtown areas of Cairo. Recent reports said there were more than 17 protesters and six policemen injured.
