Clashes rage in Cairo for fourth day
Public outrage over the Port Said massacre is boiling on the streets of Cairo. Protesters battled police forces for the fourth consecutive day demanding an immediate end to military rule. Cease fires were brokered by Islamists throughout the days of fighting, but simmering anger amongst the youth brought both sides to a head. Police forces respond with brute force, shooting directly into protesters. Defenseless against tear gas, rubber bullets and birdshot, Egyptians fighting toward the Interior Ministry remain defiant.
