Egyptian army removes tents from Tahrir Square

CAIRO — Egypt's  military was taking down the makeshift tents of protesters who camped out on Tahrir Square in an effort to allow traffic and normal life to return to central Cairo.
There were a few verbal altercations between soldiers and protesters Sunday morning as the tents were removed, but the process was generally peaceful.
Traffic also returned for the first time in more than two weeks to Tahrir, which was the epicenter of 18-days of protests that toppled President Hosni Mubarak.
