Workers cleaned stones, bottles and gasoline bombs from the streets of the square, opening up lanes of traffic, al-Masry al-Youm reported. Security forces removed a lone group of protesters who tried to set up a tent in the middle of the square, though no other incidents were reported Saturday.
Demonstrators had initially gathered at the square for "Accountability Friday," organized by more than 21 political groups to protest what they consider President Mohamed Morsi's failure to fulfill promises about democracy and social justice, Ahram Online reported.
Fighting broke out after supporters of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood party protested a Cairo Criminal Court decision Wednesday to acquit officials in the regime of ousted President Hosni Mubarak of charges they were behind the February 2011 Battle of the Camel in which 21 people were killed and hundreds injured.
