Activists voiced concerns about security forces refraining from protecting the sit-in, suggesting their implication in the attack. The sit-in began on Friday night when a group of supporters of former presidential candidate and Salafi preacher Hazem Salah Abu Ismail headed from Tahrir Square to Abbasseya, which houses the Defense Ministry, to protest the disqualification of the conservative preacher from the race.
