Eight arrested over Egypt's Shafiq HQ fire
Military police have arrested eight people over an arson attack on the Ahmed Shafiq campaign headquarters in Dokki, Giza, a security source at Giza police station said Monday.
The suspects are yet to be named.

The Giza investigations bureau is currently questioning the suspects.
The incident took place following a number of protests across the country in response to the Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission's (SPEC) official announcement that Mubarak-era prime minister Ahmed Shafiq and Muslim Brotherhood nominee Mohamed Mursi are to compete in the presidential election run-offs on 16 and 17 June.
