CAIRO - Egypt's army moved into Cairo's Tahrir Square on Monday to break up a protest that had lasted more than three weeks after the main groups involved had said they would leave but a few hundred demonstrators had stayed put, state television reported.

Footage showed army vehicles in the square and people taking down tents and canopies. There were no immediate signs of any violence.
