Egypt’s army rulers imposed a curfew on Cairo’s Tahrir Square and downtown area, state media announced on Sunday, after at least 23 people were reported killed in clashes between Christians and military police in the centre of the capital.
The curfew would last from 2am to 7am local time on Monday, state TV reported.
The Egyptian cabinet called an emergency meeting for Monday, vowing the violence would not derail the country’s first election since Hosni Mubarak was toppled.
