Egyptian protesters defy curfew order as new clashes erupt

It didn't take long for the defiance to spread.

Anti-government protesters ignored Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy's curfew order in cities along the Suez Canal and clashed with police and troops in Port Said, state-run media reported Tuesday.

It's the latest in the see-saw struggle between Egypt's first democratically elected president and dissidents who say his tenure is a throwback to the loathsome days of dictatorship.

    Please Morsy Government order a curfew on its people!! he is insane and mentally ill. I would call these Egyptians anti-Government rather the liberation party. This liberation party really don't have a good leader, there are strategies where Morsy Government is out of business in 30 days.

    Remember Mr. Said was a 28-year-old Egyptian businessman, was pulled from an Internet cafe in Alexandria last June by two plainclothes police officers, who witnesses say then beat him to death in the lobby of a residential building.
    He was killed by Egyptians secrete police because he had evidence of police Government corruption.
