Protesters Reportedly Attacking Each Other With Fireworks On Cairo Bridge

Pro and anti Morsi protesters are reportedly clashing on the 6th October bridge, an elevated highway in Cairo, Egypt. According to NBC News’ Ayman Mohyeldin, the protesters have been engaged in an “intense fight” for over an hour. 

Mohyeldin also reported the protesters are “using fireworks to attack each other” and that there are “no police or military on scene.”

Additionally, Mohyeldin said ambulances are “unable to access” the injured because they are being “turned back from [the] front lines” of the protests.
