Baku-APA. Egypt imposed a big security clampdown in its cities on Friday as mass demonstrations called to protest against austerity measures failed to take place, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

Riot police and armored vehicles filled the otherwise empty streets of central Cairo, but most people stayed at home.

 

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has urged Egyptians not to protest and warned that there would be no going back on economic reforms, no matter how much pain they might cause.
