Egyptian police beat and arrested anti-government activists demonstrating outside the downtown presidential palace against a possible father-son succession in the country.

Some 300 protesters were tightly surrounded by hundreds of riot police on Tuesday. They chanted anti-government slogans and engaged in shoving matches with security.

Protesters also waved Egyptian flags and burned pictures of President Hosni Mubarak. At least one female activists was beaten by police and others were thrown into waiting police trucks.

The rally was protesting widely rumored plans for 82-year-old President Hosni Mubarak to be succeeded by his son Gamal.

The protest comes about two months before a parliamentary elections and a year before presidential elections.
