Cairo: PM attacked at funeral of Sinai soldiers
August 7, 2012 17:55

Protesters heckled Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil while he paid tribute to the 16 soldiers killed in the Sinai Peninsula at their funeral in Cairo on Tuesday.

The funeral was disrupted by hecklers who chanted against Egypt's new Islamist leaders, who have condemned the attack but may yet face a backlash against their plans to relax restrictions on Gaza border crossings.

"The Brotherhood and Hamas are one dirty hand," chanted some of the mourners.

According to Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Yom, vandals smashed Kandal's vehicle and pelted him with shoes.
