Security forces arrest four more suspects in Kerdasa crackdown

Security forces have arrested four more suspects involved in the storming of Kerdasa police station and killing 11 policemen in mid-August.

Troops heightened security around Kerdasa police station and stopped civilians from passing through a series of checkpoints, apart from journalists given that Muslim Brotherhood supporters were said to be marching and protesting on Friday close by.

Security sources meanwhile told Al-Masry Al-Youm that troops will not encounter the marches, defending the right to protest peacefully without attacking security forces.
