Another day of tension grips Egypt. The past seven days have seen protesters try to bring down the government of President Hosni Mubarak. Violent clashes between police and demonstrators have claimed the lives of more than 100 people.

Several hundred protesters could be seen in the morning, defying the curfew as they gathered in the center of Cairo. The city's Subway stations were reopening after soldiers and neighborhood watch groups armed with clubs and machetes kept the peace in many districts overnight.

Army vehicles were deployed to main streets and bridges straddling the Nile. On Sunday, Fighter jets streaked low overhead and some of the police have returned to the capital's streets.
