RT: Scores injured, deaths reported as tens of thousands protest in Egypt to mark revolt (PHOTOS)

More than 450 people have been injured and at least nine have been
killed in street clashes across Egypt as thousands protest against
President Mohamed Morsi and his party. Troops have been deployed in the
city of Suez amid violence.

Molotov cocktails, rocks, teargas and gunfire marked the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution.

A reported 456 people have been wounded since the start of violent
clashes in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez, Reuters says citing Egyptian
officials.

At least nine people are said to have been killed in clashes across
the country. Eight of the dead, including a policeman, were shot dead in
Suez, and another was shot and killed in the city of Ismailia, medics
said.

Suez saw some of the worst clashes between police and protesters, who
set ablaze a government building that once housed the city’s local
government. Troops have been deployed to the city and tanks are in the
streets, RT’s Bel Trew reports.

“We have asked the third armed forces to send reinforcements on the ground until we pass this difficult period,” Adel Refaat, head of state security in Suez, told state television.

Meanwhile President Morsi urged the nation to “reject violence.”
“I call on all citizens to hold onto the noble principles of the
Egyptian revolution to peacefully and freely express their views
,” he tweeted. Morsi also issued condolences to the families of those killed in Friday’s clashes.

Street battles continue between security forces and protesters in Tahrir Square, Bel Trew reported from Cairo.

Teargas was used after protesters tried to breach the barrier surrounding Egypt’s Interior Ministry.

In Cairo groups of people have been engaging in fights, firing
birdshot and hurling Molotov cocktails at each other during the day,
Ahram Online reports. There also has been the sound of heavy gunfire.

Some of the thousands protesters marching for Tahrir were reportedly
attacked by men throwing rocks and glass near the bureau of the Muslim
Brotherhood’s official website Ikhwan Online.

While protesters blame the attacks on Brotherhood men, the Islamist
group claims numerous attempts to “raid” their offices, Ahram Online
says.

In Alexandria hundreds of demonstrators took part in a march, while
the city court building remained the center of protest activity.

Сrowds of protesters approached the governorate headquarters and engaged in violent clashes with the police.

Protesters broke up the pavements and threw rocks. Ahram online
reported sounds of gunfire and what appeared to be snipers on the
rooftops of nearby buildings. Police have been ordered to deal with
protesters “firmly” after a number of attempts to storm the court
building were reported, Ahram Online added citing a police source.

The protesters continue to demand the “overthrow of the regime” embodied by chants such as “Escalation, escalation! A revolution all over again!”

Relatives of Egyptian revolutionary icon Khaled Said, the young man
brutally beaten to death by the police in 2010, also joined Friday’s
protests.

“I want justice and order; I want to get rid of the Muslim
Brotherhood. I am not happy with anything that happened over the past
six months; they were worse than Mubarak’s 30 years,”
Said’s sister told Ahram Online.

Voicing Egyptian protesters frustration with the elections, as well
as the Muslim Brotherhood-shaped constitution and government, she said
they have “disregarded the interest of Egyptians and only went after their own.”

“We are beyond the point of dialogue now, they have separated people through their judgmental discourse,” Said’s sister added.

“Muslim Brotherhood made a dirty deal with the military behind
the backs of the majority of the population and they’re going against
the interest of a secular state, which the majority of the Egyptian
people want,”
author and geopolitical analyst William Engdahl told RT.

According to Engdahl, while Muslim Brotherhood is the “best organized force in the country,” they are “so
preoccupied with this Sharia agenda, this islamization, creating this
state which de facto is emerging to be an Islamic fascist regime”
that they neglected the real functioning of economy and let it remain in shambles.

There’s only one party that will decide the future of Egypt, and
that’s the people of Egypt, editor of Al-Quds newspaper, Khaled El
Shami, told RT.

El Shami believes that Morsi, along with Muslim Brotherhood have no say in what’s happening in Egypt today as they’ve already “disregarded the main goals of revolution: dignity, freedom, social justice.”

Early Friday morning has seen heavy clashes between youths and police
in Cairo. The protesters were throwing petrol bombs and firecrackers.
Police retaliated with plumes of teargas.

Reports say police set several tents on Tahrir square ablaze using incendiary bombs thrown by protesters.

According to the Health Ministry, 25 people have been wounded in the clashes overnight.

Protesters accuse Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood of failing to
comply with the purposes of the revolution. They demand greater
democracy, claiming that Morsi’s party has usurped power.

Addressing the nation on Thursday ahead of the anniversary, Morsi urged Egyptians to mark it “in a civilized, peaceful way that safeguards our nation, our institutions, our lives.”

His call was ignored as violence has become common in the streets of
Egypt. On Monday three people were killed and a dozen more injured in
clashes that erupted after a bystander was hit by a bullet fired by
police chasing a suspected drug dealer in the north of Cairo.

On the same day activists in another Egyptian city, Alexandria, were
sprayed with teargas as police tried to disperse the crowds waiting
outside the court where several police officers are standing trial for
the killing of civilians during the 2011 uprising.

Early December saw 10 protesters killed outside the presidential
palace as Morsi supporters attacked the sit-in demonstration against the
new constitution.

The document was passed by a national referendum gaining 64 per cent
in favor. President Morsi signed the constitution into law on December
26.
