Police in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, have fired tear gas at anti-government demonstrators calling on President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to leave office.

The protesters are angry at the government’s decision to hand control of two Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia.

Dozens of people have been arrested and several other places were blocked off in a major operation by security forces across the country.

Jets and helicopters were circling over Cairo during the protest, Reuters news agency reports.
