The chief of the Suez Security Police has been replaced following clashes with martyrs' families

Egyptian Minister of Interior Mansour Essawy on Saturday replaced the head of Suez Security Police, Osama El-Taweel, assigning Adel Abd El-Hamid in his place. The decision came after recent clashes between the families of the martyrs of the January 25 Revolution and the Suez police.

The clashes followed accusations that the head of Suez police helped police officers allegedly responsible for the killing of protesters to escape justice. Tension was increased by a court decision to release the accused police officers on bail.
