Cairo: Dozens of people were wounded and four buses belonging to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood were torched during clashes between pro and anti- government protestors near the Brotherhood headquarters in Cairo, capital of Egypt.
According to reports, the violence erupted after activists marched to the building guarded by police and Brotherhood members. More than 120 people were hurt as the two sides pelted each other with stones.
Police had fired tear gas at the protesters outside the headquarters before the clashes moved elsewhere in the neighborhood.
Opposition activists had called for the protest a week after they battled with the Islamists near the same building in Cairo. The movement vowed on Thursday it would protect its headquarters and bused in hundreds of supporters.
The Brotherhood has seen about 30 of its offices across the country attacked in widespread protests against President Mohamed Mursi, the Islamists’ successful candidate in last June’s election.
