Egyptian Police Go on Strike

Egyptian police went on strike, Thursday, demanding the resignation of Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim. More than 30 police stations were closed throughout the country and dozens of officers held a sit-in at a Cairo police station, claiming that Ibrahim was working with the Muslim Brotherhood to use the police as part of a political struggle.

The semi-official Al Ahram daily's Website reported that police refused to protect the private residence of President Mohammed Morsi in the Nile Delta city of Zagazig and threatened to launch a strike there on Friday.
