Violent clashes between police and a group of protesters broke out Saturday night at the headquarters of the “Muslim Brotherhood” in Cairo.

According to local media, the riots were sparked by an attack of activists of the Islamic association on journalists.

Opponents of the “Brotherhood” threw Molotov cocktails at a police patrol on duty at the HQ, with the police retaliating with tear gas. However, their efforts to contain the crowd failed, and the fire engine was unable to reach the blazing vehicle.

Egypt has recently witnessed increasingly frequent attacks on local media, which authorities accuse of distorting reality. Journalists are accused of “emphasizing the negative news, while ignoring real achievements of the revolution.”
