Politics of Egypt Breaking News: Millions of Anti-Mursi Protesters, Muslim Brotherhood Building Set on Fire

by Wochit 1:05 mins

Another giant wave of protests has once again hit Egypt as millions of Egyptians poured into Cairo's streets to oust President Mohammed Mursi. The anti- Mursi Protesters set the building of Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood on fire, surrounding it and firing shotguns and throwing rocks and petrol bombs. Massive crowds thronged the streets of Cairo and cities around the country Sunday and marched on the presidential palace in a cheering tide of people that filled a broad avenue for blocks in an attempt to force out the Islamist president, Dr. Mohamed Morsi, with some of the most gigantic protests Egypt has seen in 2 ? years of turmoil. A new youth movement called Tamarod, or Rebel, is spearheading the latest campaign aimed at forcing Morsi from office. The group launched a petition drive around three months ago to collect signatures from Egyptians who want the president to step down. Tapping into growing discontent with Morsi over what his critics allege is his failure to effectively tackle the country's pressing problems, Tamarod claims it has collected more than 22 million signatures. The petitions have no legal weight and have not been independently authenticated, but the tally would be ? if verified ? nearly twice the number of votes Morsi received a year ago when he narrowly won the presidency.
