Forty-four people were injured in scuffles that erupted in Cairo on Monday between protesters and security forces, a medical source said on Tuesday.  

Thousands of activists rallied yesterday to commemorate the anniversary of last November's "Mohamed Mahmoud" clashes where over 40 people were killed in confrontations with security.

Monday's injured, whose wounds ranged from contusions and suffocations to fractures and "birdshot" wounds, were transferred to local hospitals for treatment.
