CAIRO - Egyptian security forces began firing tear gas at protesters on Friday in an attempt to disperse the biggest demonstration in Cairo triggered by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's decision to transfer two islands to Saudi Arabia.

In one of the clearest signs that Sisi no longer enjoys unquestioning support, thousands of people called for the fall of the government, chanting a slogan from the 2011 Arab Spring uprising.
