Hundreds of protestors are gathering now outside the police headquarters in the port city of Suez after a Cairo court refused an appeal to reverse the release of police officers accused of killing protesters on 25 and 28 January.

Angry protestors are throwing stones at the police headquarters near the Suez court building while some are trying to climb the walls in order to enter the building. Police personnel inside the building are throwing the stones back at the protestors who are chanting against the Supreme Council for Armed Forces and the interim government, saying that they will take revenge with their bare hands.

Military police are surrounding the area, however, they are not interfering to stop the clashes according to Ahram Online.

Meanwhile a sit-in in Arbaen district in Suez enters its third day after the Suez criminal court decided on Monday to release the police officers accused of killing ‎‎protesters on LE10,000 bail for each defendant.
