Live Updates: Protests, clashes all over the country on revolution’s anniversary

Scores of protesters chant against the regime during January 25 rallies; clashes between demonstrators and security continue in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez as violence erupts Ismailia and Mahalla

20:10 Ahram Online’s Osman El-Sharnoubi says traffic on Cairo’s Sixth October Bridge is completely stalled as protesters placed barricades on both sides, forcing vehicles to turn around and drive on the wrong side of the road to get off the bridge. Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters marched towards the state television building Maspero (10 minutes by foot from Tahrir) on the same bridge, while chanting against the incumbent regime and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Many marchers are talking about the teargas the police have been repeatedly using to disperse the crowds today. Mohamed Shabaan from the Egyptian Current told Ahram Online: “It’s the first time we have experienced this type of gas; it’s not visible.”

Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters are chanting against Morsi and the Brotherhood in front of the state television building in Maspero, while police forces try to disperse them with teargas.
