Update from today’s EA WorldView live blog:
1740 GMT: Many reports are coming in of the Egyptian Army firing shots into the air and chasing and beating protesters outside the State Security Headquarters at Lazoghly in Cairo.

There are also reports of "thugs" assaulting protesters from the other side. Demonstrators are trying to regroup in Tahrir Square.
More from Egyptian exile Aimée Kligman, Egypt's Amn Al Dawla security police turn on Egyptian civilians.
