Activists rally in Cairo against law curbing demonstrations

Standard

Hundreds of Egyptian activists demonstrated on Saturday against an anti-protest law, one month before a presidential election which former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is widely expected to win.They marched to the presidential palace in Cairo calling for the scrapping of the law passed by Egypt’s army-backed interim leadership in November to curb unrest that erupted after the army’s overthrow of elected Islamist president Mohamed Mursi.The law requires anyone planning a demonstration to obtain police permission. Saturday’s protesters did not.A few threw stones at the police, who did not react and there was no serious violence.
