Interior Ministry warns against break-ins on Mohamed Mahmoud anniversary



The Interior Ministry warned against what it claimed were calls to break into government buildings Monday, when activists plan to memorialize last year's clashes

on Mohamed Mahmoud Street.

So far there have been no calls to enter government buildings, but peaceful marches from Cairo University to Tahrir Square have been planned.

The ministry’s media spokesperson said the Interior Ministry has reassured protesters many times that it firmly believes in peaceful and legitimate freedom of expression, without attacking the freedom of others, their interests or public facilities.

He added that the ministry took all necessary measures to protect its premises in accordance with the provisions of the law and that police were trying to ensure safety and security for all citizens, while urging protesters not to heed the alleged calls to break into government buildings.
