Hundred of people in Egypt's Suez city continued their protest Wednesday over a court's decision to release seven policemen who were accused of killing civilians during the anti-government protests earlier this year.

The protestors threw rocks at Suez security headquarters and tried to break into the building, Egypt's independent news website El-Youm7 reported.

The Suez Criminal Court on Wednesday upheld the ruling of releasing the seven officers on bail.

Suez was one of the Egyptian cities which witnessed fierce clashes during the protests which toppled the regime of former President Hosni Mubarak in late January and February.
