A wall was built by the military in Qasr El-Aini Street early Sunday as clashes continue around Tahrir Square.

Hundreds of protesters continue to clash with security forces, particularly near the Omar Makram Mosque off Tahrir Square. Police continue to fire tear gas.

According to an Ahram Online reporter at the scene, there is a high security presence in the area. Some of the protesters are children wearing their school uniforms.

Hundreds of protesters remain in Tahrir Square to voice their condemnation of President Morsi's Constitutional Declaration which gave him sweeping and unchallengeable powers.
