    Cairo Clashes enter fourth consecutive day


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter arasquare was right in the middle of Thursday nights angry protests in Cairo, Egypt, to commemorate those killed in protests last year during the country's revolution. "It's about not prosecuting those who killed the protesters and the daily violations committed by the security forces," he said. When protesters heard about Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy's order preventing any court from overturning his decisions, essentially allowing him to run the country unchecked until a new constitution is drafted, they became even more angry, he said, even though the president also announced retrials for some of those acquitted of violence in last year's protests. Thousands are expected in Cairo's emblematic Tahrir Square on Friday for more protests, he said.

    Clashes in Cairo continue between protesters and security forces for the fourth consecutive day. The clashes started on Monday, November 19th, as protesters took to the streets to commemorate Mohamed Mahmoud deadly clashes last year. The clashes have escalated as security forces fired bird-shots and tear gas, where protesters threw rocks and molotov cocktails. Hundreds were injured. The clashes are taking place mainly in Mohamed Mahmoud street, downtown Cairo. There's so much anger against the Ministry of Interior, the government and the president mainly because no one of those who killed, injured or tortured the protesters was prosecuted. Security forces have conquered a school in the streets and used its rood to throw school desks, wood, rocks and other material on the protesters in the street.
