Demonstrators where confronted by Officers in civilian uniforms as they tried approaching Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Tear gas was used on protesters and several reports have been made of arrests in the country’s capital.
“If el-Sisi does not announce his resignation by Thursday, then the Egyptian people will come out to the squares on Friday in protest,” Ali said in a video posted on Tuesday.
The protest started after self-exiled Egyptian businessman Mohamed Ali accused the President of corruption and requested that people take to the streets even after he denied the allegations.
