CAIRO (AFP) - Egyptian protesters clashed with police in Cairo for a second day on Tuesday on the one year anniversary of deadly clashes that left 45 dead, an AFP reporter said.

Protesters and police pelted each other with stones and rocks and some demonstrators set fire to tyres in the middle of roads off Tahrir Square.

Medics said around 60 people were injured in two days of confrontations.

One protester, a member of the April 6 movement, is in critical condition, the group said.
