Egypt riot police drive protesters out of square
Cairo: Egypt`s riot police are dismantling tents and arresting hold-out activists as they clear out protesters from central Cairo`s Tahrir Square.
Scuffles broke out on Saturday between the police and a small number of protesters, who had spent the night in the square following massive demonstrations the day before.
Police were seen beating activists who challenged them and a news agency’s cameraman saw police arrest three people who refused to leave.
Tens of thousands of Islamists and young activists massed in Tahrir Square on Friday, confronting Egypt`s ruling military council. The military tolerates daytime demonstrations in the central square, a symbol of the country`s January 25-February 11 uprising, but claims that long-term occupation paralyses the city.
