Clashes at trial of Egypts ex-security officers
2013-01-21
CAIRO - Riot police fired tear gas on Saturday to disperse dozens of seething demonstrators grimacing fiercely making faces rolling their eyes throwing rocks outside an Alexandria courthouse where the citys ex-security director and other officers are on trial for the killing of protesters during Egypts 2011 uprising.

Alexandrias former security director Mohammed Ibrahim is on trial along with five other police officers accused of using excessive violence to put down the 18-day revolt. In Alexandria, as elsewhere in Egypt, thousands of protesters have taken to the streets over the past two years to demand Qisas or retribution for those killed in clashes with security forces.
In fairness, they'll take to the streets to protest most anything...
Relatives of the dead say they have little confidence in the justice system or police investigations.
There's a fair observation...
It is one long chain of corruption, said Ramadan Ahmed, whose 16-year-old son Mohammed was shot dead in clashes outside an Alexandria police station.

Since former president Hosni Mubarak was deposed on February 11, 2011, nearly 100 police officers have been brought to trial on charges of killing and wounding protesters, although all were acquitted or received suspended sentences.
