ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Police clashed with supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi in downtown Cairo as night fell on Sunday, after they staged a march on Tahrir Square. As night fell the protesters gathered in nearby Talat Harb square, where police fired tear gas at them and chased them into the surrounding side streets. The government says it is enforcing a new protest law that has been harshly criticized by rights advocates as being too restrictive.

It contains language that could ban Islamist parties outright.
