Police officers continued to protest across Egypt on Wednesday urging the removal of Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim and demanding officers be allowed to carry guns.
Police officers at the General Traffic Department in Daqahliya went on strike, closing the doors of the authority in protest against recurrent attacks on officers as well as their lack of arms. They also called for higher salaries and medical care. (...)
Ahmed Gamal, coordinator for a coalition of low-ranking police officers, said the protest is an escalation meant to stress their demands, which include promotions, medical care and the elimination of corruption.
