Egyptian interior minister: Infiltrators will be shot

Egyptian Interior Minister Mansour al-Essawy on Monday said that anyone who tries to break into the Interior Ministry will be shot, Egyptian daily Al Masry al Youm reported.
In an interview with Al Masry al Youm, Essawy also said that he gave the same order to the police chief to protect police stations, and that Interior Ministry officers were taking sniper courses with the armed forces.Snipers reportedly fired on and killed protesters trying to break into the Interior Ministry and police stations during the revolution last winter which toppled former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, Al Masry al Youm said.
Essawy's statements came after protesters stormed the Israeli Embassy in Cairo and protested outside the Saudi Embassy and Giza Security Directorate in early September.
