PHOTOS: Tahrir Square violence

Security forces fired tear gas and clashed Monday with several thousand protesters in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, in the third straight day of violence that has killed at least 24 people and has turned into the most sustained challenge yet to the rule of Egypt's military.

Sunday night saw an escalation of the fighting as police launched a heavy assault that tried and failed to clear protesters from the square.
