Unknown assailants kill eight at Cairo protest
Unknown men have killed at least eight people protesting against Egypt's ruling generals near the defence ministry in Cairo. Witnesses described how the attackers set on them at dawn using rocks, clubs, firebombs and firing shotguns. Up to 100 people were also reportedly injured and are being treated at a field clinic in the Abbasiya district. Many of the protesters are supporters of a Salafist preacher barred from standing in the presidential election, Bbc.co.uk reported.
