Riots Follow ‘New Democracy' in Egypt

Scenes of last year’s anti-Mubarak uprising returned to Cairo’s Tahrir Square Monday as thousands rioted, some of them torching the headquarters of presidential candidate and former prime minister Ahmed Shafik. No deaths were reported and there were few injuries, in sharp contrast to last year’s demonstrations in which Mubarak’s security forces shot protesters on the spot.
