Anti el-Sissi protest near Egypt‘s Tahrir Square

(20 September 2019) Dozens of Egyptian protesters on Friday demanded President Abdel-Fatah El-Sissi step down.

The demonstrators gathered in Abdul Munim Riad square in the capital Cairo.

Police were present and armed vehicles were patrolling the area.

Tens of thousands of Egyptians have been arrested since 2013, and many fled the country.
