Dozens of residents of Giza's El-Saff district blocked the village's main road on Friday to protest the absence of security forces in the area since August, when the village's police station was burned down during the recent wave of political violence throughout the country.

Protesters decried the lack of protection in the rural district south of Giza as a result of police absence. The area's only police station was destroyed during clashes between supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi and security forces in August.

These protests followed the forced dispersal of the two largest pro-Morsi protest camps in Cairo on 14 August, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of protesters and dozens of policemen.

A number of security officials are currently negotiating with the residents to reopen the road, Ahram Arabic's news website reports.

No solution !
The Brothers know one language only : the language of violence. Their actions can only be aborted by preemptive strike. The current government knows that but ignores it . See events around universities, key city junctions, police stations etc. Reasons : a mix of fear (also for personal safety), traditional culture-rooted decision aversion, submission to external threats (USA and the criminal court) and , last but not least, incompetency!! Is there a solution in sight??? Non!! Egyptian education and culture do not produce the kind of firm handed decision maker who can identify goals and pursue them with seriousness and determination!!!

Perfect example of what the Egyptian people want and need.
Fed up with unemployable Muslim brotherhood terrorists running amuck creating mayhem in the name of God and their freedom to terrorize. Then the MB whines like bratty kids when the police and the military does its job to restore order. Will some get uprehended and jailed?... YES!! Will some get shot at???... You bet you!!!! The MB gets what is comming to them due to their actions and deeds. THANK YOU GEN. Sidi
