BBC correspondent caught up in Cairo protests

Help

Protesters have been on the streets of the Egyptian capital Cairo for a sixth day of demonstrations against the rule of President Hosni Mubarak.

The police, involved in violent clashes with protesters in recent days, have largely disappeared from the streets. There is a heavy military presence in the city, but soldiers are not intervening.

BBC correspondent Lyse Doucet joined protesters on Tahrir (Liberation) Square, the focal point of the demonstrations in the city.
