ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Youths fought Egyptian police in Alexandria on Friday (January 25) on the second anniversary of the revolt that toppled Hosni Mubarak and brought the election of an Islamist president who protesters accuse of riding roughshod over the new democracy. Protesters and riot police skirmished near local government offices. Tear gas fouled the air and black smoke billowed from tyres set ablaze by youths. Nine people were wounded by birdshot pellets, according to medical and security sources. Protesters were also clashed with other civilians who were attempting to stop the demonstrators from reaching police lines. Thousands more protested against the Brotherhood in cities across Egypt including Cairo, Suez, Ismailia and Port Said. The Brotherhood decided against mobilising in the street for the anniversary, wary of the scope for more conflict after violence in December that was stoked by Mursi's decision to fast-track an Islamist-tinged constitution.
