SUEZ, Egypt - Hundreds of Egyptians hurled stones at government buildings in the city of Suez on Wednesday after a court upheld a decision to free 10 policemen on trial for killing protesters and grant them bail, witnesses said.

There were no reports of injuries in the violence, in which relatives of some of those killed in the uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11 stoned the courthouse and the police headquarters in the Suez canal city.

"The courthouse, the security directorate offices and dozens of police cars were smashed," one witness told Reuters. He said that some 300 protesters remained outside the compound, which was being guarded by soldiers.

Dozens of people were holding a separate protest in the city center.
