11 pro­test­ers killed in Egyp­tian clashes

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

SUS­PECTED sup­port­ers of Egypt’s mil­i­tary rulers have at­tacked pre­dom­i­nantly Is­lamist anti-gov­ern­ment pro­test­ers out­side the De­fence Min­istry in Cairo, set­ting off clashes that left 11 dead. Pro­test­ers have been camped out­side the De­fence Min­istry for days de­mand­ing an end to the mil­i­tary rule that re­placed Hosni Mubarak, the long­time au­thor­i­tar­ian leader ousted 14 months ago in a pop­u­lar up­ris­ing. Most of the pro­test­ers were sup­port­ers of dis­qual­i­fied pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Hazem Salah Abu Ismail.
