Petrol bombs at Egypt presidential palace

2012-12-05 20:09

Cairo - Petrol bombs were hurled during clashes between supporters of President Mohammed Morsi and his opponents outside his presidential palace, a Reuters witness reported on Wednesday.

The clashes erupted after the Muslim Brotherhood, the group that helped Morsi win a presidential election in June, told its supporters to go to the palace where opponents had gathered to protest against the president's expanded powers.

Brotherhood supporters say they had been shot at during the clashes, where rival sides brawled and threw stones at each other. One protester showed off what he said was a gunshot wound to the leg, with blood pouring from the wound.

    This will most certainly be the west's fault. The west would have supplied these stones and petrol bombs. Then of course the west also arranged the unrest. Hmm what a conspiracy

    They are getting what they deserve. They didn't want Mubark. He was a stable influence for regional peace & for egypt's economy. They made their beds, now sleep on them..
