Mohamed Mahmoud

A video from Ahram's Arabic news website shows clashes between protesters and police on Monday in Mohamed Mahmoud Street in downtown Cairo.

The ongoing street fighting erupted between protesters and security forces, while thousands were commemorating the anniversary of the 2011 clashes that led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries.

The 2011 violence had started when security forces attacked a peaceful sit-in, provoking hundreds of thousands to fill Cairo's iconic Tahrir Square.
