Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq told journalists on Thursday that his government did not have enough police to provide security amid deadly clashes between pro- and anti-regime protesters.

"I do not have enough police," Shafiq said, blaming the fact that the police stopped doing their job when the army deployed troops around the capital and the rest of the country on Friday.

"When the army moved in many of the riot police went back to their villages and we can't get them to come back," Shafiq said.
