New clashes in Cairo's Tahrir Square

Clashes have again erupted in the Egyptian capital as security forces continue their efforts to clear Cairo's Tahrir Square of protesters.

Protesters fear the interim military government is trying to retain its grip on power ahead of parliamentary elections planned to begin next week.

At least 20 people are reported to have died since the violence began on Saturday with hundreds more injured.

Egypt's ruling military council is reportedly considering whether to accept the resignation of the entire cabinet.
