    MOSCOW, April 27 (RIA Novosti) – At least 16 people were injured after dozens of protesters clashed with police in the Egyptian capital of Cairo near the Presidential Palace on Friday, Al Arabiya reported.

    Policemen began dispersing protesters by firing teargas after they had hurled stones at law enforcers and set ablaze a police car.

    According to Al Arabiya, protesters consisted of members of the Black Bloc group, which stands against President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, and football ultras youth.

    Nine months into his presidency, Morsi, Egypt's first freely-elected civilian president after a revolution that ousted Mubarak two years ago, stands accused of betraying his election campaign promises by consolidating the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood and of failing to become a leader of all Egyptians.
