Four people on Thursday were injured in clashes between protesters and security forces in Cairo's al-Qasr al-Aini street and Tahrir Square, spokesman of the Ministry of Health Ahmed Omar said on Thursday.

Two of the wounded were transferred to Mounira General Hospital, one to al-Manyal University Hospital, and one to al-Qasr al-Aini Hospital, the Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported Omar as saying.

No deaths were reported so far, the spokesman added.

Thousands demonstrated earlier today in front of the concrete wall security forces have erected at the entrance of al-Qasr al-Aini Street to prevent demonstrators from reaching vital facilities in the area.

A number of eyewitnesses said that police forces have started erecting another concrete wall in front of the cabinet building after scuffles between protesters and security forces, MENA reported.
