Egypt’s security forces fired heavy rounds of teargas in Tahrir in the late hours of Tuesday, dispersing around 200 protesters who had remained in the square to commemorate the 2011 Mohamed Mahmoud Street clashes.
 

Most of the few thousand protesters who marked the second anniversary of the clashes in the iconic square had left by 10pm after organisers of the commemoration ended their vigil.

Earlier in the evening, dozens of the protesters had clashed with police forces deployed at the nearby Arab League headquarters. The clashes followed a day of largely peaceful protests in the vicinity of Tahrir Square.

Tanks moved in to block entrances to Tahrir.

Days of clashes between anti-military protesters and security forces erupted in Mohamed Mahmoud Street, just off Tahrir Square, on 19 November 2011, leaving 47 dead and at least 3,000 injured.

Senile!!
That is what you get when revoke emergency laws, withdraw curfew and appeas the Brothers!!! All of that is the result of shaky and senile leadership by the Prime Minister and his crew. I doubt that you will publish this statement as you seem to be equally shaky though not senile yet!!!

The Fasciste military Junta showing their muscles
Where were these muscles when Egypt was and is always humiliated by its strong neighbor? Why don't the military point their fury toward their true enemy? I am ashamed of this military.
