Video shows Alexandria official threatening teachers with gun

A video that shows Alexandria's deputy governor threatening a group of teachers with a gun has surfaced on social networking websites.

A group of temporary teachers had attempted to meet with Deputy Governor Mahmoud Ateeq to demand the Education Ministry implement its decision to permanently hire temporary employees, including teachers and workers.

According to the website Masrawy, the teachers decided to begin an open-ended sit-in outside Ateeq's office after he refused to meet with them.

A group of teachers had gone to meet with Ateeq at his office Monday evening, protesters said. They said he threw them out of his office and threatened them with a gun, causing them to panic.

The teachers have since refused to end their sit-in.
