Nine people were hurt when gunmen fired at protesters camping in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Tuesday, according to witnesses and Egyptian media, as the opposition called for a major demonstration it hopes will force President Mohammed Morsi to postpone a referendum on a new constitution, Reuters reported. It was unclear who perpetrated the pre-dawn attack.
Thousands of pro- and anti-government demonstrators again took to the streets Tuesday in Cairo, Egypt, ahead of a constitutional referendum on Dec. 15.
