Army police, vehicles confront Egypt protesters

CAIRO - Military police in riot gear fired tear gas at demonstrators in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday and some of them threw stones, supporting police who had earlier tried to disperse a protest in the square without success, television images showed.
Protests fled from the army police lines, many into side streets.
More than a dozen armored personnel carriers also took up positions around Egypt's Interior Ministry, a focus for protester anger at heavy-handed police tactics used to try to break up a demonstration in central Cairo, a witness said.
