"What is this democracy you speak of?"

Seems some Egyptians are still a little unclear on the concept...
The ministry was the site of a peaceful protest Tuesday morning and afternoon, with thousands of ministry employees -- many of them police officers -- making demands, mainly for higher wages.
But wait a minute, I guess there's peaceful... and there's PEACEFUL...
Protesters at the building denied setting the fire, saying it originated inside.

In a similar protest a few weeks ago, demonstrators set other buildings in the Interior Ministry complex ablaze, as well as cars. However, that fire did not grow to the size of Tuesday's blaze.
Oh, well... baby steps.
