Police also said they secured 16 firearms that were looted from the police stations of al-Adwa, Matay, Samallout and Mallawi after being stormed and robbed during riots that erupted in the governorate, following the sit-in dispersals of Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda squares in Cairo and Giza.
The suspects were referred to prosecution and remain in custody for 15 days pending interrogations.
