ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Anti-Mursi protesters camping in Tahrir square set fire to two vehicles. One of the vehicles torched belongs to a privately owned company who protesters claim belongs to a senior Muslim Brotherhood member. The other torched vehicle belongs to the State Security, and was attacked during its passing of Tahrir square. Egypt has been witnessing a wave of anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations since last November against President's Mursi's decisions and policies. Violence also erupted in the restive Egyptian city of Port Said on Sunday (March 3) after news emerged that the Ministry of the Interior was attempting to move the prisoners accused of taking part in a deadly football riot. The Mediterranean port city has been simmering since an outbreak of violence killed 32 people following a verdict by a Cairo court condemning to death city residents implicated in a deadly soccer stadium riot last year.
