Aftermath of Tahrir Square's deadly clashes

Egypt's army has cracked down on protests in Cairo's symbolic Tahrir Square, leaving at least one person dead and dozens injured.

The violence occurred overnight as the army tried to clear protesters calling for ex-President Hosni Mubarak and his family to be tried for corruption.

The BBC's Yolande Knell witnessed burnt out vehicles left smouldering in the square on Saturday.
