Today sees the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution. Again Tahrir Square is a mass of protestors, not celebrating the revolution, but calling for the downfall of president Morsi.

Twitter feeds from Cairo have reported major clashes all day and there are widespread reports of women being attacked in Tahrir by groups of men.

Latest reports state the army has deployed tanks  to Cairo, Giza, Suez, Ismailia and Port Said.

Report Digital has uploaded three new video rushes today.

Day of Rage – Cairo


Friday 28 January 2011: Video rush of the attacks by the thousands of riot police against the anti-government protestors in the back streets in Cairo, as the uprising attempted to regain Tahrir Square.

This video coverage was cut short after about two hours, when our team was caught between tear gas and live fire from shotguns at one end of the street and around 100 riot cops and a large group of secret police at the other. We were grabbed by the secret police, strangled and beaten to the ground, then marched out of the protest. We expected to be put in the waiting prison van and be driven into the desert. Instead, after shouting to watching crowds of people that we were British press the police took our memory cards and let us go, emphasising we get off the streets immediately. We did. Unfortunately they pulled the stills memory card from my camera and didn’t realise the camera was old-school DV tape. Hence this video.
