Egypt: Protesters Close Tahrir Governmental Complex

A number of protesters closed the Tahrir governmental complex and banned employees and citizens from entering to protest sits-in currently staged outside the Supreme Constitutional Court by the president's supporters.

The protesters in Tahrir set out barbed wires around the complex, causing altercations with employees and citizens.

The complex will not be fully open unless the sit-in outside the country's top court is over, the protesters insisted.
