Protesters set fire to multinational force tower in Sinai | Egypt Independent

Few Americans I suspect realize we’ve had troops sitting in the Sinai for many decades. 

Protesters set fire to a security tower belonging to the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in North Sinai and raised a black flag with the inscription "No God but Allah," perhaps to express rejection of an anti-Islam film produced in the US. 

The incident was preceded with clashes between protesters and MFO operatives, leading to one injured man. Fire was exchanged between the two parties, while protesters demanded that the Force be expelled.
