Civilian members of Egypt’s government have offered to step down after large scale conflicts in Cairo’s Tahrir Square this weekend.
Months of exasperation with Egypt’s military rule erupted into violence on Sunday as protesters faced off with soldiers.
As Egyptian troops attempted to clear the square, protesters resisted and were tear-gassed by soldiers. Rocks were flung back and forth. There are also allegations that live ammunition was used, and it’s being reported that at least 24 people have been killed.
Elections are scheduled a week from Monday, but protesters have long been demanding civilian government rule.
