Gunmen attack Egyptian police in Rafah after Mubarak speech
Clashes took place between police and unidentified gunmen in Rafah, a town near Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip, witnesses said Friday, after President Hosny Mubarak refused to step down the day before, DPA reported.
Some people were ready to fire bullets in the air to celebrate Mubarak's resignation, as was expected late on Thursday. Gunmen later attacked the police station after they were angered when he only shifted his powers to his deputy, Omar Suleiman, witnesses added.
The gunmen also fired rocket-propelled grenades in the attack.
