Protests erupt in Egypt's Al-Arish town

Published: 08.08.12, 07:17 / Israel News

Protests erupted on Wednesday in Egypt's Al-Arish town in the Sinai Peninsula after clashes escalated between armed men and security forces, a few days after 16 border guards were shot dead in an attack blamed partly on Palestinian militants.


"God is Great," hundreds of protesters chanted as they gathered in front of a governor's office, a Reuters witness reported. The protesters demanded state protection after a series of attacks on security checkpoints in town. (Reuters)
