Hundreds of protesters gathered on Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday night demanding the ouster of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Security forces quickly dispersed the demonstration.

Similar protests took place in other cities around the country.

Witnesses in the Egyptian capital saw some protesters being rounded up amid a heavy security presence, including riot police and plainclothes officers.

At least 74 people were arrested following the clashes, an unnamed security source told the Agence France-Presse news agency.
