Interior Ministry compound torched in Cairo

An Interior Ministry compound in Egypt was burning Wednes­day as smoke billowed into the sky over Cairo, Cnn reports. Wit­nesses said the fire was started by protesters upset about labor issues and the blaze could have been ignited by Molotov cocktails. Part of a building, and surrounding buildings such as the criminal records building, had been torched as well as several cars. The incident comes as Egyptians continue to work to create the new leadership structure of the country after the revolution. State-run media re­ported Wednesday that there have been about 1,300 official complaints against former Egyptian ministers and government officials.
