In the second day of clashes with the Police, Thousands of Sinai demonstrators burned down the local headquarters of the Ruling National Democratic party. ALLRIGHT!
Thousands of demonstrators destroyed the regional headquarters of Egypt's
ruling party in the northern Sinai peninsula Sunday, burning furniture
and blocking roads in a show of anger over the central government's
treatment of area residents.
Dozens were injured in clashes when plainclothes police attacked the
demonstrators with batons, tear gas and metal chains, police and
witnesses said. Two police officers were also injured and at least 40
people were arrested.
It was the second day of protests in the town of El-Arish
sparked by a shootout between Bedouin tribesmen and locals. On
Saturday, the demonstrators' demanded protection from lawlessness
Protesters blocked the roads leading to the town center and burned
tires, demanding the resignation of the Northern Sinai governor and the
local police chief, said Amin al-Qassass, a leader with the El Arish
branch of the liberal opposition party Al Wafd who saw the clashes.
Police officials in Cairo confirmed the ruling party headquarters in
the town was destroyed and furniture and other items set ablaze. The
officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not
authorized to speak to the media.
About two dozen armored vehicles surrounded the demonstration and
hundreds of security forces, including plainclothes officers,
intervened, police officials and witnesses said.
And it all got started because of the Bedouins.
The trouble started Saturday evening when scores of masked Bedouins
opened fire in a dispute with local residents, injuring three people
and damaging shops and cars, police said. Thousands took to the streets
demanding better protection from raids by the semi-nomadic Bedouin.
So the Beoduins, who are angry at the police for arresting their people, so they go and start some shit with Al Arish residents, who get angry for the lack of protection by the government, so they burn down the NDP Headquarters, thus getting to the police to clash with them and beat them up.
I love Egypt!
