This morning the army moved in and is attempting to force the protestors out of Tahrir Square. Tents have been dismantled. Following a call out, thousands are said to be streaming back into the square to back up those who have vowed to remain until the regime is out of power. This in defiance of the call by Mohamed Ibrahim Moustafa Ali, the head of military police, "We do not want any protesters to sit in the square after today"

Protestors face military in Tahrir Square
Bloggers in the square report that the soldiers are not being violent. They are fearful that the military, which has not sacked the Mubarak cabinet, is now beginning to attempt to a reurn to pre-revoltionary normality. As one put it, "It may seem very paranoid but what if the military played us all ?"
Elsewhere protests are reported outside a bank near the parliament building, and policemen in Cairo and October City are demonstrating for 'better working conditions'. In Alexandria hundreds of Bank of Alexandria workers are protesting for better pay.
