Dozens of Egyptian journalists staged a march from the press syndicate in downtown Cairo to the nearby prosecutor-general’s office to file a complaint against the interior minister and the head of the capital's security directorate.

The marchers, holding up cameras and slogans mostly calling for the release of detained journalists, protested against the police after a number of reporters were arrested on Monday, which saw limited protests in different parts of the country.

The protests, which were over the recently declared Egyptian-Saudi island agreement, were all promptly dispersed by police in Cairo amid heavy security presence, with rallies supporting the deal and celebrating Sinai Liberation Day allowed to take place.

Egypt's press syndicate has repeatedly condemned the arrest of journalists and others on Monday.
