Egypt police to return to streets on Monday-sources

CAIRO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Egypt’s police, withdrawn after the army were sent in to restore order in cities amidst widespread anti-government protests, will return to the streets on Monday, security sources said.

One of the sources said police would return to traffic, criminal and other work but would not be sent in to confront protesters, with whom they clashed often violently in the first days of the protests.

The army were ordered in on Friday. (Writing by Edmund Blair)
