Egypt: Health Ministry - More Than 100 Injured in Ministry of Interior Clashes

More than 100 people were injured in clashes in the area around the Ministry of interior building between protesters and security forces, Health Ministry Undersecretary, Hesham Shiha, said.

These protests were against what was called "the complicity of security bodies".

In a statement to Nile news channel, Shiha said that the injured were transported to Al-Monira and Al-Kasr Al-Aini hospitals.

Most of these injuries are fractures and breathing difficulties due to tear gas.
