NEW YORK – Al-Sisi supporters and pro-democracy protesters teased each other during their protests
Tension between Egyptian groups emerged in New York just in front of UN Headquarters as pro-democracy protesters and Al-Sisi supporters demonstrated at the same time.
Groups chanted slogans expressing their views. Al-Sisi supporters danced during their protests while anti-coup demonstrators had a Sisi puppet hanged on scaffold also carrying banners of Turkey and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to show their appreciation of Turkish support to the anti-coup demonstrators.
Security forces took extra safety measures during the 4-hour long protests and tried hard to keep the groups apart as they very often teased each other.
Protests ended without any trouble.
