Hundreds of doctors stood in line on Friday morning outside the headquarters of Egypt's Doctors Syndicate in downtown Cairo, waiting to sign their names to show they are attending an emergency general assembly of the syndicate to discuss escalating measures, including possible strikes, in the face of police assaults.

Doctors were asked to sign their names before the emergency general assembly of the syndicate, that was scheduled to start at 1pm. As the numbers increased, high-ranking police officers apeared in the vicinity.
