Hundreds of Islamist protesters returned to Media Production City Monday to continue surrounding the facilities after earlier leaving the area.
Altercations between protesters and reporters broke out at the city’s fourth gate as 20 Central Security Forces teams and 14 armored vehicles were deployed to secure the facility and employees within.
Salafi former MP Mamdouh Ismail was among those joining the protest, saying that "the sit-in shall be the launch of a wide-scale revolution that would tour all Egyptian squares," he said.
The renewed protests came as the government condemned previous protests that took place at the Media Production City on Sunday.
Cabinet spokesperson Alaa al-Hadidy said in press statements on Monday that "assaulting city workers and blocking their entry to, and exit from, their workplace is an unacceptable action that is not in line with the right way to voice a different point of view," adding that such actions distort the image of the Egyptian revolution.
