Plainclothes forces have attacked hundreds of Egyptian demonstrators with knives and rocks outside the State Security Agency headquarters in Cairo. Around 500 protesters, demanding the closure of the secret police headquarters, were met with violence by security forces wearing civilian clothing on Sunday, AFP reported. To stop protesters from storming the building -- where documents were reportedly being destroyed that proved human rights violations -- the army fired warning shots and used batons to disperse the crowd, witnesses said. Earlier, in a similar incident, hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency in Alexandria to protest human rights abuses, which stemmed from ousted President Hosni Mubarak's nearly three decades of state of emergency rule. The gathering also turned violent when security forces opened fire on protesters, injuring at least three. State security agents have been blamed for the violence during massive protests in Liberation Square to overthrow Mubarak. On Saturday, former interior minister in charge of the secret services under Mubarak -- General Habib al-Adly -- was summoned to court and charged with money-laundering and corruption. He has denied all the charges. Egypt's former Petroleum Minister Sameh Fahmy has also been summoned to court over accusations of selling gas to Israel and six other European states for prices lower than international ones. Fahmy claims he only carried out the orders made by Mubarak.
