10 arrested with bombs near downtown Cairo: TV
Egyptian security forces arrested 10 people on Friday with bombs in their possession in Cairo's downmarket neighborhood near the downtown where thousands of protesters gathered to demand the end of President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year-old rule, Dubai-based Al-Arabiya TV reported.
The TV said the arrested were trying to put rockets on the roof of one of the buildings in the neighborhood of El-Sayeda Zeniba in Islamic Cairo, Xinhua reported.
This came as thousands of protestors are flocking to the Tahrir Square, namely the Liberation Square, in downtown Cairo on Friday for the 11th day of mass protests.
Waving the Egyptian flag and singing the national anthem, the demonstrators prayed in the revolt-hit square where clashes erupted late Wednesday which left at least eight dead and more than 800 injured.
