Egyptians protest against President Sisi

Tear gas has been fired to disperse demonstrators in Cairo.

Tear gas has been fired to disperse demonstrators in Egypt, at some of the first protests since President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi took power in 2014. Hundreds of Egyptians filled Tahrir Square in Cairo demanding his resignation. The protests were in response to corruption allegations against President Sisi's government.
