STORYLINE:

Dozens of people were arrested on Sunday, after clashes erupted between Egypt's security forces and protesters outside the Muslim Brotherhood's headquarters in Cairo.

Egypt is currently mired in another wave of unrest that has plagued the country since the ouster of authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in the pro-democracy uprising two years ago.

Hundreds of protesters clashed with police who fired tear gas at the crowd.

The demonstrators were responding to an assault on journalists, who claimed they were attacked by Brotherhood members on Saturday evening during coverage of a meeting.

The journalists said that after a group of activists sprayed anti-Brotherhood graffiti on the ground outside the group's Cairo headquarters, the Brotherhood guards attacked with sticks and chains.

A Muslim Brotherhood spokesman said in a statement that guards outside the building were provoked and insulted by the activists and journalists.
