Protesters in Mahalla, the largest industrial city in Egypt, threw out the head of their city council, Friday night, and announced their autonomy from the “Muslim brotherhood” state.

“We no longer belong to the Ikhwani state,” they announced from the city council.

Mahlla is known for its clashes with the police in 2008 which some analysts consider to be the spark of the January 25 2011 revolution.
