Mubarak backers charge camels towards Tahrir: witness

CAIRO (Reuters) - Supporters of Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, wielding sticks and whips, charged on horses and camels toward Cairo's Tahrir Square, where clashes were taking place with anti-government protesters, a Reuters witness said.

Another Reuters witness said protesters had told her that they believed that some of the pro-Mubarak supporters behind the clashes Wednesday were plain clothes police.
