Egypt cracks down on troublemakers

Protests in different places on Monday were met by security forces who made clear they were not going to tolerate any bad behavior according to this report.

Although the Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a terrorist organisation in Egypt (as it has been in Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Russia), its supporters are still a major problem.

Of course, some protesters are genuinely unhappy with the poor economic situation, which the Egyptian government is well aware of and is doing its best to improve, and the reason for the deals the government has made recently with France and Saudi Arabia (despite the unpopularity of the latter).
