CAIRO — Egyptian police are clashing for a second day in central Cairo with protesters demanding that the military quickly announce a date to hand power to an elected government.
The police on Sunday were using tear gas against several thousand protesters in and around Tahrir square, birthplace of the 18-day uprising that toppled authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in February. The protesters were pelting the police with rocks.
The clashes followed a day of violence in Cairo and elsewhere in the country in which at least two people were killed and hundreds wounded. They were the worst clashes between police and protesters in months.
The clashes are stoking tension less than two weeks before the start of the country's first post-Mubarak parliamentary elections.
