Egypt: Streets of Cairo on fire as anti-protest law flouted

Clashes erupted in Cairo on Friday as members of the Muslim Brotherhood gathered to protest against the government's policies and to demand ousted president Mohamed Morsi's release, defying a new law banning unauthorised demonstrations.

Protesters set up bonfires on the streets of the Egyptian capital and riot police shot teargas to disperse the crowds. Dozens of demonstrators have been injured while others fainted after inhaling teargas. Demonstrators marched chanting slogans and showing four fingers, known as the Rabia sign, which has become a symbol of Morsi’s supporters.

At least one student was reported killed on Thursday and 21 others wounded after police and protesters clashed during a rally at Cairo University.
