Clashes between security forces and residents of Gharbiya on February 8, 2013 - Aswat Masriya


Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood clashed with Tanta residents in Gharbiya province using firearms on Friday after the former staged a march against top army commander Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the police.

The protesters, who support former President Mohamed Mursi, marched to denounce the clearing out of the Brotherhood's sit-ins in Cairo last week.

The Brotherhood allies marched while chanting against Sisi and the police, prompting residents to clash with them in Saeed and Moheb streets.

Gharbiya's security headquarters intensified security measures at the province's headquarters, police stations, and churches for fear of attacks by pro-Mursi protesters on them.
