05 MAY , 10:07

(ANSAmed) – CAIRO, MAY 5 – Dozens of people were injured yesterday evening in central Cairo during clashes between those supporting and those opposing Mubarak, according to a security forces representative.

Hundreds of Mubarak supporters gathered yesterday outside the building housing the public TV station in the centre of the city for the 83th birthday of the ousted leader, protesting against appeals for him to stand trial.

Claiming that the former president is a symbol warranting respect, the demonstrators unleashed the fury of the anti-Mubarak demonstrators at the same location, who instead demand that the former leader be executed for his role in the killing of anti-regime protestors. Clashes broke out between the two factions, who threw stones at each other before the army intervened. Traffic was blocked during the incidents.
