Egyptian authorities detain 24 for protesting

Published: 11.27.13, 17:26 / Israel News

Egyptian authorities took a step Wednesday toward prosecuting 24 detained activists for holding a street rally and violating a new law banning protests without permits, fueling calls for new protests in a mounting confrontation between the military-backed government and democracy advocates.


The Cabinet vowed to continue implementing the law, linking it to Egypt's fight against terrorism, a term used to label actions by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood group. Still, the Interior Ministry appeared to be trying to avoid an immediate clash, saying it has granted a permit for a protest Wednesday. (AP)
