Nine hurt as unknown attackers shoot at Cairo protesters
Nine people were injured when unknown attackers opened fire at protesters camping at Tahrir Square on Tuesday. Police cars surrounded the square, the first time they have appeared in the area since November 23.
The attackers also threw petrol bombs which started a small fire, according to witnesses. Many protesters, awakened by the commotion, chanted, "The people want the downfall of the regime," as recorded recitations of the Koran were played over loudspeakers in the square.
