(ANSAmed) – CAIRO – Police on Friday morning resumed firing tear gas against demonstrators who were trying to storm cement walls erected near Tahrir square to prevent protesters from reaching the interior ministry building.
Demonstrators hurled stones over the wall and police fired tear gas.
Last night police had also intervened after demonstrators tried to damage the cement barriers along the boulevard leading to Tahrir square near the parliament and cabinet. The barriers were set up ahead of the great event organized today by opposition forces to mark the second anniversary of the revolution which ousted Hosni Mubarak. According to the Egyptian health ministry, 16 people were wounded in the clashes last night.
Police forces have re-built the cement barrier blocking the main road accessing the square while hundreds of anti-riot police and armoured vehicles have been deployed. A wall made of cement blocs was also built to block access to parliament’s side road.(ANSAmed).
