Scuffles have erupted between Egyptian police and protesters celebrating a top court’s final ruling against the government’s decision to transfer sovereignty of two strategic Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia, PressTV reported.
On Monday, the Supreme Administrative Court announced that the islands of Tiran and Sanafir are Egyptian and sovereignty not handed over to the Saudi regime, sparking celebrations even in the court room.
The celebrations then spread into the streets with Cairo.
They however turned violent when people celebrating scuffled with police, resulting in the arrest of several people.
It is not known yet what led to the scuffles at this moment.
