The April 6 Youth Movement issued a statement condemning the country's security forces’ firing of teargas, as clashes continue near the High Court on Saturday night.

“The regime’s ministry of interior respond to chants with teargas and birdshot,” read the statement published on the movement’s official Facebook page.

The movement further accused the ministry of interior of "prostituting" for every regime.

Security forces continue to fire teargas in the late hours of Saturday evening to chase away protesters who keep coming back to the High Court, reported Ahram Online’s Sherif Tarek who is at the scene.

Dozens of ambulances have been deployed in Ramses Street, where the High Court is located, according to Tarek.

Numbers of injured has not been released by the ministry of health.

The people want to bring down the regime,” protesters loudly chanting as many severely coughed from excessive teargas.

Several thousand protesters had marched from across Cairo to the High Court on the 5th anniversary of the birth of the 6 of April movement  to voice opposition to the ruling Muslim Brotherhood and to demand the removal of the president-appointed prosecutor-general.

Protests also took place in Mahalla and Mansoura.
