Thousands of protestors surrounded Egypt's National Museum in downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square to protect it, according to Al Jazeera reporter.

Earlier, the Egyptian television reported that the museum is surrounded by the army to prevent any robbing attempts.

Massive violent anti-government protests took place around Egypt on Friday, leading to deaths and injuries. Reports circulated by the television channels said that the Arab United Bank has been robbed amid violent protests, Xinhua reported.

Along with the robbery, fire eruptions in the Tahrir area have also put the Egyptian museum in danger, which led the army to rally in order to protect it.
