CAIRO- Egyptian activists demonstrating for reform of Interior Ministry security forces said they were confronted by men in plain clothes armed with knives during a protest at police offices in Cairo on Sunday.

Two activists speaking to Reuters by telephone from the protest said they were trapped by "the thugs".

It appeared to be the first time armed men in plain clothes had deployed in force to confront reform activists in Cairo since the toppling of President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11.
