Police fired teargas to disperse a crowd of several hundred people in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Tuesday, two years after 42 were killed in protests against military rule. The protests were a mark of the turmoil that has dogged Egypt since the army ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July and took back control of the Arab world's most populous state. Some supporters of army chief General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, who overthrew Mursi and promised free and fair elections, also showed up at Tahrir but were chased away by activists.
