Cairo protests are still scaling new heights as the protesters are stepping up in their demand for resignation of the military rulers of the Egypt. Street battles with riot police have been heaviest around the fortified interior ministry located on a side street off Tahrir Square. Reportedly, there was also gunfire, which was reported late on Wednesday though it was claimed to be firing only tear gas. Apparently, the protesters’ demands are there to only have a civilian government which will have nothing to do with the military. Even this violence is also expected to overshadow the nest week’s parliamentary elections.
