Attorney-General Chancellor Abdel Meguid Mahmoud has ordered 32 detainees to be remanded in custody for four days pending investigation in the U.S. embassy clashes.
The Interior Ministry announced late Thursday that security forces arrested 37 protesters in the clashes.
The detainees face charges of assaulting police forces, damaging public and private property around the embassy headquarters, rallying in front of the embassy and stirring chaos.
Clashes were renewed more than once on Thursday between police forces and protesters demonstrating against a film that insults Prophet Mohamed after the protesters tried to break into the U.S. embassy in downtown Cairo.
The Ministry of Health announced yesterday that the number of people injured in the clashes reached 224 while the Interior Ministry stated that the clashes left 31 police officers and conscripts wounded.
