Central Security Forces (CSF) use tear gas and water canons against protesters at the gates of the presidential palace.
While tensions were calm during a demonstration in Heliopolis, the situation escalated further into the evening.
Police, who had been stationed in front of the gates of the palace behind barbed wire, retreated behind the wall of the complex.
As a Molotov cocktail was thrown from the protesters’ side, CSF responded with water cannons and tear gas.
Clashes continued to escalate as both sides began throwing rocks.
