Egyptian police to use live ammo in confrontations: TV

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian security forces will use live ammunition to counter any attacks against themselves or public buildings, state television said on Thursday, quoting the Interior Ministry.

The announcement came hours after protesters torched a government building in a Cairo suburb. On Wednesday, hundreds of Egyptians died following a fierce security crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood.
