Some police officers started on Saturday an open-ended strike in Kafr Al-Sheikh governorate. The striking police officers closed the main door to the governorate's Security Directorate building.
They announced that they will be hold a sit-in until their demands are met.
"We will continue to escalate the matter until the Minister of Interior leaves, yet some of us continue their work in securing vital installations," police officer Yehia Abul Naga told Aswat Masriya.
Some leaderships in the Security Directorate tried to negotiate with the striking police officers to open its doors, but to no avail.
The police officers demand sacking the minister of interior and his assistants, cleansing the ministry, raising the salaries of police officers and finding a quick solution to the current political crisis that makes them at a constant confrontation with riots and thuggery.
They also demand sacking the newly-appointed head of Kafr Al-Sheikh's Security Directorate Ossama Motawli.
