Officials were not immediately available for comment. A security source earlier said a fire had erupted at a building used to store criminal evidence near to the Interior Ministry.

Tanks and soldiers are still at intersections in Egypt’s capital after Hosni Mubarak was toppled in an 18-day uprising during which the ruling headquarters was burned down in Cairo and police stations were set on fire throughout the country.

Plain-clothed policemen and soldiers cordoned off the area around the ministry on Wednesday, pushing away hundreds of onlookers who came to see the burning vehicles.
