Thousands of Suez residents demanded the dismissal of Interior Minister Mansour al-Essawy as they gathered in Arbaeen Square to participate in Friday's protest.
The demonstrators emphasized the need to purge the ministry of holdovers from former President Hosni Mubarak's administration, who they say are corrupt and were involved in torturing citizens and killing protesters during the revolution.
People gathered all over the port city to march to Arbaeen Square after Friday afternoon prayers. They condemned the recent release on bail of policemen accused of killing protesters.
Military forces tightened security measures across the city.
The demonstrations grew Friday morning, as hundreds of citizens flocked to the square to join the families of revolution victims who started a sit-in on Thursday.
