Dozens of protestors marched from Tahrir Square to the prosecutor general's office at the High Court to condemn security forces' stripping and beating of a protester yesterday during clashes in front of Ettehadiya Palace and to demand Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim's dismissal.

Protesters chanted “it is the same crisis ... the Brotherhood are a group of thieves” and “police are thugs," and held banners reading, “Morsy, leave with you Interior Minister” and “Mr. Prosecutor General, Morsy is attacking defenseless people.

Some of the protesters tried to enter the building, but were blocked by security forces, who closed the main gates.
