This is the horrifying moment an armoured police vehicle was pushed off a bridge by protestors in Cairo today.

The van plunged off the 6th October Bridge before demonstrators attacked the wreckage. It is not known how many people were on board and how many people survived the fall, but bloodied men were seen lying around the van moments afterwards. Unconfirmed reports on Twitter claimed five were dead.

Blood can then be seen on the ground as nearby police officers pull injured men out of the crushed vehicle.
