Violence follows sit-ins dispersal

Security forces disperse Al-Nahda pro-Morsi sit-in and struggle with dispersing the Rabaa sit-ins

Sporadic violence took over Cairo streets following the forcible dispersal of the two sit-ins set up in support of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo on Wednesday.

Sit-ins dispersal started early Wednesday, as security forces began attacking the Rabaa Al-Adaweya and Al-Nahda sit-ins with teargas and blocking all roads leading to both sit-ins, reported state-run Al-Ahram.

Security forces were able to completely disperse Al-Nahda sit-in in Giza. Pro-Morsi protesters then moved to Gamaet Al-Dewal street and blocked it trying to form a sit-in at Mustafa Mahmoud square. Eye witnessed claimed they saw a group of civilians block the street with burning tyers before teargas was fired around Mustafa Mahmoud square in Mohandesseen. Central Security Forces (CSF) trucks then arrived, blocking the streets while firing teargas.
