NNA - Interior and Municipalities Minister, Raya Al-Hassan, commented on today's protests via her Twitter account, saying: "I understand the people's complaints about the difficult economic and financial situation, and I certainly am with the freedom of demonstration and expression, but what I do not understand are the images of burning, sabotage and cursing that distort any demand movement."

"As an Interior Minister, I can only commend the security apparatuses for their long and tiring day, and the efforts of their members that prevented people from taking the demonstrations to other ends far from their actual goal," she added.

"At the same time, I do not accept that any security member encroaches on any citizen," Al-Hassan asserted.
