Egypt protesters storm Muslim Brotherhood offices in Cairo and Alexandria

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian protesters have ransacked an office of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party in the northern coastal city of Alexandria.

It was the second such attack on an office of the Islamist group on Friday. The first was in the Cairo neighborhood of Manial.

Both attacks happened as opponents and supporters of the Brotherhood clashed near the group’s headquarters in Cairo.

An Associated Press cameraman saw protesters attack the office in Alexandria, leaving with computers, files and other objects. The attack took place near the site where unknown assailants fought protesters demanding the resignation of President Mohammed Morsi, who is a member of the party.

Brotherhood offices came under attack across Egypt last December.

The group has characterized the assailants as ‘‘thugs’’ and ‘‘counter-revolutionaries’’ seeking to oust the democratically elected leader.

Video appears to be Cairo though

UPDATE:

MM has provided this lively video from Alexandria itself

Meanwhile, Bedouins kidnapped a Norwegian and Israeli tourist. The Norwegian one has an excuse. But what the Israeli one was doing there… well the Norwegian one had better be hot.

  1. Friday sees Brotherhood offices under attack across Egypt

    In Cairo, Alexandria, Mansoura, Mahalla, and Zagazig, Muslim Brotherhood buildings were attacked, in a day of protests against the group

    Protests against the Muslim Brotherhood, from which President Mohamed Morsi hails, sparked violence in a number of cities across the country on Friday.

    The Brotherhood’s main headquarters in the Cairo district of Mokattam was the epicentre of events, and the area surrounding the premises saw prolonged violence between anti-Brotherhood protests and members of the Islamist group. Police repeatedly tried to disperse the crowd with teargas.

    On their way to the Mokattam district, some anti-Brotherhood demonstrators stopped to storm the Brotherhood office in Cairo’s El-Manial district, around six kilometres away from their target destination.

    According to Ahram’s Arabic language news website, the intruders destroyed several desks on the ground floor before leaving. Some of the demonstrators also tried to set the place alight but were prevented by other marchers.

    Police forces arrived later on and protesters dispersed.

    Over 200 kilometres away in the coastal city of Alexandria, protesters ransacked a local office belonging to the Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).
