In Pictures: Clashes around the US embassy in Cairo

Protesters hurled rocks and the occasional Molotov cocktail while CSF forces replied with tear gas and charges with armoured trucks to force the crowds back.



Several hundred protesters continued skirmishes throughout Thursday on Omar Moqam and Abd Al-Qadr Hamza streets between Tahrir Square and the US embassy.

Protesters hurled rocks and the occasional Molotov cocktail, at one point setting a police vehicle ablaze, while CSF forces replied with tear gas and charges with armoured trucks to force the crowds back.

A number of protestors were confirmed injured but no official figures were released. Into the afternoon on Thursday unconscious protesters were carried to waiting ambulances, suffering from tear gas inhalation. An ambulance driver estimated that around six protesters were hospitalised for minor injuries, with another 90 treated onsite for minor injuries, mostly gas inhalation.
