Protests in Egypt and unrest in Middle East – live updates

• Cairo a 'war zone' as demonstrators demand president quit
• Protests continue in Tunisia and Lebanon

The Associated Press news agency has filed a report on thousands of protesters, some throwing rocks and climbing on top of an armoured police truck, clashing with riot police in the centre of Cairo. Police responded with water cannon, batons and tear gas, as we have reported. Demonstrators were shouting "Down with Mubarak," a reference to Hosni Mubarak, the president, and "demanding an end to Egypt's grinding poverty, corruption, unemployment and police abuses".

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
