Egypt's state TV and a number of privately-owned channels have reported that their crews were attacked by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi while covering his trial Monday at the Police Academy in New Cairo.

The state broadcaster said production trucks outside the location of the trial were destroyed by angry demonstrators.

Meanwhile, privately-owned TV channels CBC and ONTV – both known to espouse an anti-Morsi policy – said their crews were also attacked by protesters there.

Saudi TV station Al-Arabiya told Ahram Online it too had suffered attacks by protesters.

Al-Ahram's Arabic news website also reported assaults against journalists at the Supreme Court south of Cairo where a large pro-Morsi demonstration is being staged.

No, it cannot be true. They are peaceful(irony). Those, who are violent, are beltagiyas paid by Israel, USA, KSA, Iran, Lesotho, Suriname, the Freemasonry and the Martians. All the universe is plotting against the Ikwan, it's all a conspiracy to make them appear violent. Or did I misunderstand them? They are making a violence contest: the more violent they behave, the more peaceful they appear... it's the rule of "the opposites attract". Silly me for not understanding them.
