The human resources section of the Egyptian interior ministry building is ablaze. The police have been pressuring the interior ministry to have human resources review which of the police had a clean record so those can return to work.

Allegedly, some policemen have set the human resources section of the interior ministry building on fire and it is rumoured they did this to burn any archives proving any corruption.

Several fire fighting trucks are in the area to put out the fire. Not so surprisingly, fire fighters were missing when the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) building and several police stations were on fire during the Egyptian revolution.

Three cars outside the building also caught on fire.
