Angry at Ahmed Shafik good performance in the the first round of elections and his announcement that he will participated in next month's run off election protesters stormed his election headquarters.
Angry protesters have stormed the campaign headquarters of Egyptian presidential candidate today only a few hours after it was announced that he would take part in next month's run-off election.
The headquarters of Ahmed Shafiq, the law-and-order candidate, caught fire though the flames were quickly extinquished. No injuries were reported.
The reason for the protests is they are furious that Shafiq who is Mubarak's last prime minister and a symbol of Mubarak's deposed regime has fared so well in the first round of elections.
Crowds are moving toward Tahrir square, now, where more than a 1,00 people have gathered to protest Egypt's election results.
