11:24, November 21, 2011

CAIRO, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Joint forces of the Egyptian police and military forces started Sunday evening to evacuate protestors from central Cairo's Tahrir Square, Egyptian Nile TV reported.

The military police fired tear gas at demonstrators when the clashes erupted between the security forces and protesters in the square, the TV said.

Many of the protestors fled into the side streets after the forces' effort to clear the square, which has been witnessing demonstrations from Friday calling for the ruling military council to hand power to civilians.
