More than 60 injured in Egypt clashes

Cairo – At least 61 people have been injured in central Cairo, some with bullet wounds, during clashes between police and protesters on the anniversary of lethal street violence between activists and security forces.

Activists called the protest on Monday to put pressure on President Mohamed Mursi to punish those responsible for killings and abuses during the rule of the generals who assumed power after Hosni Mubarak was toppled by an uprising in February 2011.

The skirmishes, which extended into Tuesday, erupted at the scene of clashes last year in which 42 people were killed during protests against the military council that ran the country before Mursi was elected in June.

Some activists said the latest bout of violence began when police forces threw rocks at protesters on Monday to try to stop them from taking down concrete barriers that have blocked off roads to the Interior Ministry since last year. They said they had a court order allowing the barriers to be removed.
