Thirty-nine people were arrested across Egypt during clashes between anti-Muslim Brotherhood protestors and police on Monday, state news agency MENA has reported.

Twenty-one people were arrested at the presidential palace in Cairo's Heliopolis district and referred to the prosecution office on charges of assaulting police forces. They were also accused of attempting to break into the palace.

Anti-Brotherhood protests took place in Cairo and several other governorates on Monday, the second anniversary of the day Hosni Mubarak was forced from power.

In Cairo, skirmishes broke out in the evening between protesters and Presidential Guards at the palace.

The Presidential Guards used water cannons against protesters after they attempted to tear down barbed wire surrounding the palace.

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim had ordered extra security at the palace and on nearby roads.

Another 18 people were arrested in Tanta in the Nile Delta during clashes outside local government buildings.

A security official has said 19 people arrested on Friday during clashes at the presidential palace were being detained in Tora prison pending investigations, MENA reported.

For the love of God Wake up!
OPEN LETTER TO Mohamed ElBaradei How sad to see Egypt descend into anarchy, the needless loss of life, vibrant youth fighting for change and hope with aspirations of liberty and freedom of choice. At the other spectrum President Morsi, the islamist dominated parliament that rushed through a disputed constitution that was approved by ONLY 21% of the total eligible voters in Egypt{ 32.9% of total eligible voters participated & voted , the constitution was approved with 63.8% of the vote in favour over the two rounds of polling.} In addition the Muslim Brotherhood has failed on its promise of a prosperous renewed ne Egypt with respect and dignity.

In a democracy if a government or president is elected by the people in fair elections in any where the world, no one can expect a change overnight or in few days. If president is elected for 4 years then let him complete his tenure and then hold him or his government accountable for his failures and not delivering his promises. If only 21% elected him then how many casted their votes against him,,? If 81% kept quiet and didn't bother to come out to show their opinion then they have no right to cry now. In democracy you can not count the votes that never showed up in polling stations. Opposition has the right in democracyy to criticize the wrong doing of the State or president in a peaceful civilized and democratic way not through violent acts. If a elected President falls or removed in few months for not delivering his promises and a new president from the opposition block is elected then he would be able to deliver anything in few months..? Will the Islamist will keep quiet to le

Wrong observation
According to your logic, American and European leaders are all unlegitimate since they won less than 15% of the public's vote?????I am sure that Mursi didn't force those who didn't home to stay at home.
