Egypt: Cairo protesters firebomb Al-Jazeera office

CAIRO (AP) Witnesses say Egyptian protesters have firebombed one of the
offices of satellite broadcaster Al-Jazeera in the third day of violence in
central Cairo. The protesters attacked the studio overlooking Tahrir square
with Molotov cocktails and petrol bombs early Wednesday, leaving it gutted
by fire hours later, witnesses said.

Disgruntled youth and security forces have been clashing in the area since
Monday, with protesters hurling stones and firebombs and security forces
firing birdshot and tear gas into the crowd. Some protesters had been
accusing Al-Jazeera of bias in support of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's
most powerful political force from which President Mohammed Morsi hails.

The protests started on the first anniversary of a previous street battle
between police and demonstrators that left 42 protesters dead.
