Egypt protesters firebomb Al-Jazeera's Cairo office
CAIRO (AP) - Egyptian protesters firebombed one of the offices of satellite broadcaster Al-Jazeera on Wednesday and attacked a police chief who tried to negotiate an end to three days of violent protests in central Cairo.
The protesters hit the studio overlooking Tahrir Square with Molotov cocktails, engulfing it in flames. In a televised interview from inside the gutted office, reporter Ahmed el-Dassouki said around 300 protesters approached the building before noon, shouting obscenities.
He said they set the place on fire, stormed the building and looted the studio.
"They accuse our network of being biased and not objective," he said.
