Early Monday we woke up on clashes in Mansoura between protesters and Muslim brotherhood members at the Governorate HQ when the protesters blocked it with the main way starting some sort of sit in . We knew that Muslim brotherhood sent its followers to disperse that sit in from that Post published by MB’s RSSD network claiming that the MB members in Dakahlia went to aid “the citizens” to against those “thugs” blocking the way.
People also identified some MB members from TV clips and photos aired from Mansoura.
That video was spread like fire showing the MB members and supporters attacking the protesters including two ladies. This brought to the memory the infamous 5 December 2012 clashes.
By the afternoon the MB members withdrew and the police forces from CSF arrived to start even bigger clashes between Protesters and CSF. The CSF fired tear gases and birdshots madly. There are two badly injured citizens in the clashes. People are speaking about the use of live ammunition.
Things erupted badly when rumors spread that two babies suffocated from tear gases. I read that a CSF vehicle was torched.
Some protesters from activists in the governroate have been arrested.
Here is a photo gallery showing the clashes in the city.
The clashes have not stopped yet in Mansoura
Journalists should head there immediately.
There is something going on outside Cairo and it is spreading : Port Said , Tanta/Mahalla and now Mansoura.
