Egypt protests: Deadly clashes in Cairo's Tahrir Square

At least two people have been killed and more than 600 wounded in fierce clashes between protesters and security forces in central Cairo.

The clashes came as police moved to prevent a long-term sit-in following a huge demonstration against the military leadership on Friday.

Some protesters lobbed rocks and a police vehicle was set on fire.
