Egypt forces clash with protesters

June 29, 2011

Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, the nation’s military that has assumed control in a transitional government leading up to the country’s September elections,  clashed with protesters Tuesday night.

According to Zeinobia, who writes on Egyptian Chronicles, the 2,000-person protest in Tahrir Square started with a Tweetup. The Egyptian Ministry of the Interior has blamed out of control protesters for the dust-up.

The Associated Press reported a 5,000-person “rock-throwing” crowd was met with tear gas and force.
