After violent clashes outside Egypt’s Defense Ministry, military prosecutors in Cairo have ordered the detention of 300 protesters, including a number of journalist, on charges of assaulting troops and disturbing the peace. Friday’s violent conflicts — the worse some have seen in recent times — came three weeks before the May 23rd presidential election and left one soldier dead.

The protesters were upset over the generals’ failure to protect a demonstration that taken place on Wednesday. The demonstration came under attack from armed men, resulting in the deaths of at least 20 people.

Protesters will be held for 15 days. Military officials have stated that they will release all women who were involved. A curfew has also been enforced around the ministry and many Egyptians, who just want to see some restored order, are in favor of the way officials are handling the matter.
