CAIRO — Protesters early today vandalized the pedestal of a memorial dedicated to demonstrators killed in Egypt’s revolutionary turmoil only hours after the prime minister inaugurated it in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

The attackers, mostly men in their early 20s, used rocks to chip away at the large foundation stone and sprayed it with red graffiti denouncing both ousted President Mohammed Morsi as well as his nemesis Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who removed him in July after days of mass protests demanding that the Islamist leader step down.
