CAIRO - At least two people were killed in fresh violence in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday when police backed by the army charged protesters to disperse a demonstration against military rule, medical sources said.

A Reuters cameraman had seen a body of one man, identified by activists as Shehab el-Diun el-Dakroubi, 28, on Sunday evening in a makeshift clinic next to Tahrir Square.

The cause of Dakroubi's death was not immediately clear nor was it clear if he was one of the two cited by the sources.

Two people had been killed in earlier violence that began on Saturday in Cairo and Alexandria, according to state media citing the Health Ministry.
