      New Clashes in Tahrir Square


      Clashes broke out in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Tuesday evening, Reshet Bet reports. Twelve people were arrested, including a young man and woman accused of trying to ignite a government building.

      Protesters and police have clashed several times in recent days, leading to over 40 deaths and several hundred injuries. The demonstrations were sparked by a court’s decision to hand down death penalties to 21 people convicted of sparking a stampede in a sports stadium.
