Hundreds Injured in Egypt Clashes

Cairo's Tahrir Square is starting to look like it did in February, with tens of thousands of protesters marching against the military government on Friday, and violent clashes erupting with police on Saturday. At least 213 people have been injured, according to the Egyptian health ministry. Police evicted protesters who had camped in the square overnight, but hundreds returned and violence erupted. Police fired tear gas and one protester claimed "they beat us harshly." The Muslim Brotherhood, largely responsible for the high turnout for yesterday's protest, denounced the eviction of protesters, calling it reminiscent of the old regime.
