The Associated Press writes that "Egyptian protesters and police clashed in Cairo on Tuesday just hours ahead of a planned massive rally by opponents of the country's Islamist president demanding he rescind decrees that granted him near-absolute powers."
There's tear gas in the air at Cairo's Simon Bolivar Square, reports journalist and CNN contributor Sara El Sirgany. Video that's reportedly from the scene has been posted here.
