Protesters have decided to once again to live in an encampment in Tahrir Square, in the centre of Cairo, shortly after bloody clashes with army forces in the early hours of Saturday.
Hundreds of Egyptians defied soldiers who tried to disperse them overnight from Tahrir, vowing Saturday to keep protesting until ex-President Hosni Mubarak is tried and other demands met.
Some demonstrators, angry at the army's use of tasers and batons to try to drive them out of Tahrir, hurled rocks at a burning army bus and truck. Gunshots echoed around the square during the night as the army sought to clear the area.
After a protest by hundreds of thousands of Egyptians during Friday, the army surrounded the square after curfew, set from 2am to 5am, to push out those who remained. A number resisted this use of force and continue to occupy Tahrir.
Tahrir Square was the epicentre of the 25 January Revolution, which resulted in the ouster of Mubarak on 11 February. During the 18-day revolt, protesters staged a massive sit-in in the square. Thousands lived in tents during that period. Scores now vow to do so again.
