Egypt: Clashes at Damietta Police Station

Violent clashes broke out on Wednesday in Damietta between security forces fending a police station and family members of a dead victim who seek vengeance from the murderer who is arrested in the station.

An Aswat Masriya witness said that the police forces fired gunshots and teargas bombs to disperse the raged family members who want to take the law into their own hands. He said that the situation keeps getting worse.
