In Egypt thousands of police officers went on strike on Wednesday demanding the resignation of Interior Minister Mohammed Anwar Ibrahim they believe is too closely associated with the country’s ruling Moslem Brotherhood party

The walkout was sparked by an online video showing several policemen and senior officers guarding the presidential palace clubbing down a demonstrator during Monday’s protests timed for the second anniversary of the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.
