Still Not Going Well in Egypt

More than 231 people have been injured in clashes between groups of armed men and pro-reform protesters marching towards Egypt's ministry of defence in the capital, Cairo, the country's health ministry said.


Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin, reporting from Cairo, confirmed that "people with knives, sticks and petrol bombs surrounded the peaceful protesters" and assaulted them with their weapons.

"The situation is extremely tense, the military has used tear gas and fired into the air to push back crowds."

He also said that besides firing warning shots, the military did not intervene in the clashes.
