Egyptians demand resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Intro

Thousands of Egyptians took to the streets of Cairo and Suez on Friday September 20, demanding the resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

The protesters  were seen chanting “rise up, fear not, Sisi must go” and “the people demand the regime’s fall” were confronted by officers in civilian uniforms as they approached Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where mass protests which toppled Hosni Mubarak started in 2011.

The protest which took off after self-exiled Egyptian businessman and actor Mohamed Ali accused President el-Sisi of corruption and called on people to take to the streets and demand his removal, had reports of arrest and teargas being used.
