Health Ministry spokesperson Mohamed El-Sherbeeny has said clashes in Tahrir on Tuesday left 108 injured, of which 10 are in critical condition.
A fight using Molotov cocktails and pellet bullets broke out on Tuesday evening north of Tahrir in Abdel Moneim Riad Square, when individuals in civilian clothing attempted to attack the square. Earlier in the evening, activists in Tahrir Square told Ahram Online that several men wearing red T-shirts and wielding truncheons had attacked street vendors in the square where protesters have been holding a sit-in since 19 November.
