Egypt elections: Protesters gather in Tahrir Square

Demonstrators have been gathering in Egypt's Tahrir Square, protesting against different elements of the new constitution being drawn up by the Supreme Council of Armed Forces and the ongoing military rule.

The upcoming presidential elections have been mired in controversy, before they've even been held, with protesters unhappy about the disqualification of prospective candidates from the presidential elections.

The BBC's Jon Leyne says the demonstrations are much larger than those which took place a week ago.
