Cairo - Pro-Mubarak demonstrators were tearing down anti-Mubarak banners that have decorated Tahrir Square for three days Wednesday afternoon. Tanks on the periphery of Tahrir Square were starting to move in anticipation of unruly crowds.

Protests in Tahrir Square have been mostly peaceful since Sunday, but the crowds have also been entirely anti-Mubarak. Thousands of Mubarak supporters are streaming into the square now waving flags and giants posters of the 30-year ruler of Egypt.
