Egypt: Protesters defy new anti-demonstrations law

Text size Aa Aa

In Cairo protests by hundreds of Egyptians continued into Tuesday night despite attempts by riot police to disperse them.

Most of them were students defying a new law which bans demonstrations without prior police approval.

Activists have described the legislation as a violation of their right to protest.

Egypt will hold a referendum on an amended constitution which includes the new law in December.
