The violent clashes between Egyptian security forces and protesters continued in the streets near Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Monday evening, for the third straight day.
Riot troops fired a hailstorm of tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowd throughout the night. Even though street lamps were cut on the main battle line - a small stretch of street in the downtown district of the capital - hundreds of protesters surged into the line of police in the dark, attacking with rocks, Molotov cocktails, and slingshots.
