Egypt’s ruling military council denies “rumours of army forces using tear-gas cannisters against protesters,” in communiqué no.83 issued on the SCAF’s official Facebook page.

The communiqué stated that army forces have not fired tear-gas at protesters “in Cairo or Alexandria or anywhere else [in Egypt].”

Protesters in Tahrir reported on Tuesday night of suffering symptoms different from those arising as a result of exposure to the tear-gas fired by police forces on protesters in Mohamed Mahmoud Street since Sunday.

The sudden strong smell caused protesters to think a different type of tear-gas, possibly nerve gas, had been fired into the square, which led some to believe the new tear-gas being used hails from the Army.
