Qasr Al-Nil Prosecution ordered Saturday an April 6 Youth Movement member detained for four days pending investigations for handing out flyers "inciting against the army and the police" when calling for demonstrations to mark the Mohamed Mahmoud Street battle anniversary.

Several political groups are calling for a protest 19 November, marking the second anniversary of the Mohamed Mahmoud Street clashes with police during which tens were killed and others were severely injured.

The protest is called for by the Way of the Revolution Front, a political umbrella group that includes members of the April 6 Youth Movement, Strong Egypt Party, the Revolutionary Socialists and the Justice and Freedom Youth.

The Way of the Revolution Front was launched 24 September, aiming to provide an alternative to the current polarisation between the military and Muslim Brotherhood.

Nothing but a ploy to divide the people further and get them to go against the Army and State Institutions. They're provoking nothing but a confrontation and another "massacre", that's all. I really don't understand the point you are trying to make, do you even live in Egypt and know what's going on? Nobody should be out there on that day celebrating or demonstrating anything, it's enough of that. It's all provocation, from both sides at this point. And it's El-Sisi ya Ikhwani Faraz if you know how to spell and you want to adress the person of interest properly. Mohamed Mahmoud was nothing but a attempt to destabilize Egypt and those who were behind it know it very well.
