Clashes erupt in front of Maspero
Ahram Online, Sunday 29 Jan 2012

Clashes have erupted between protesters in front of the state TV building in Maspero and people believed to be residents from the adjacent Bulaq Abu El Ala neighbourhood.

An eyewitness told Ahram Online that people came from Bulaq and attempted to attack the protesters, who responded by throwing stones at the Maspero building.

Ten protesters were injured during the fighting.

A group of protesters have been staging a sit-in outside the Maspero building since 25 January to call for the cleansing of state media.
