Clashes between protesters and security forces briefly flared up around Ettehadiya Palace on Monday morning.

The clashes erupted at gate 4 of the palace, near Heliopolis Club.

The two sides hurled stones at each other as security forces chased the protesters off onto side streets, arresting several of them. However, security forces did not use tear gas. Protesters were also seen beating on lampposts with stones on Mirghany Street.

Calm eventually returned to the area.
