Cairo: More than 120 people have been injured in clashes between opposition protesters and Islamists near the headquarters of Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the capital. The violence erupted after activists protesting against the Islamists' policies and targeting of journalists, marched to the building guarded by police and Brotherhood members.
More than 120 people were hurt as hundreds of opposition activists and the Islamists battled in the streets of the Mokattam neighbourhood where the headquarters are situated. Thousands of Brotherhood supporters had travelled in front of the headquarters since Thursday to protect the building.
The protesters torched their buses to keep them from returning to their hometowns. Taking advantage of the absence of Brotherhood members from governorates a number of their headquarters were attacked and one in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla was burnt down.
Meanwhile, the police are attempting to create a buffer zone between the two sides in order to minimise injuries and prevent casualties.
