Protesters torch Suez Security Department

Protesters set fire to a weapons storage facility and a garage after breaking into the Suez Security Department after funerals for victims of Friday's violence in the city.

No Interior Ministry personnel were in the security department, and Civil Defense forces are trying to control the blaze.

The Armed Forces are attempting to secure the city of Suez following violent protests during demonstrations commemorating the 25 January revolution that have left several dead.
