Protests arrive at president's door

PROTESTERS condemning Egypt's Islamist president hurled stones and firebombs through the gates of his palace yesterday.

The demonstrators clashed with security forces who fired tear gas and water cannon, as more than a week of political violence arrived at Mohammed Morsi's symbolic doorstep.

Yesterday's march on the palace was part of a wave of demonstrations in cities around the country called by opposition politicians, trying to wrest concessions from Morsi after around 60 people were killed in protests, clashes and riots.
