Cairo's Tahrir Square fills with protesters

Help

Tens of thousands of protesters have filled Cairo's Tahrir Square to denounce a move by Egypt's ruling generals to seize sweeping powers.

Last weekend, the military dissolved parliament, claiming legislative power.

Egyptians are still awaiting the result of presidential elections, which Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi says must be declared immediately.

The BBC's Jon Leyne reports from Tahrir Square.
