A group of protesters have attacked the campaign headquarters of Egyptian presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq in the capital, Cairo.
They set fire to an annex to the headquarters building in the Dokki district late on Monday, reports said, while Egyptian TV stations broadcast its footage.
The attackers also ransacked the building, allegedly taking campaign posters and computers from there, BBC reported.
No one was reportedly injured, as firefighters quickly put out the blaze, leaving damages to the building.
Police have arrested eight suspects near the headquarters.
Hundreds of protesters have been rallying around the building as well as the city's central Tahrir Square, scene of the protests which forced President Hosni Mubarak to quit in February last year.
They are protesting to manifest their frustration and anger over the official election results, which showed that Shafiq, who was the last Prime Minister of Mubarak and is viewed by many as a representative of the old regime, is still in the race to the presidency.
Egypt's election commission confirmed on Monday that Muslim Brotherhood's candidate Mohamed Morsi and Shafiq have qualified for the June 16 run-off that will see Egypt's first democratically elected President.
