Troops heading to Tahrir, Cairo University

BBC Arabic reporter Claire Reed snaps a picture of armored military vehicles crossing the Oct. 6th bridge heading to Tahrir Square, where hundreds of thousands of anti-Morsi protesters are gathered.

The BBC’s Jeremy Bowen reports that armored vehicles pulled into Cairo University, between opposing pro- and anti-Morsi rallies, leaving a light force of soldiers behind.

New York Times’s Kareem Fahim says soldiers in Nasr City told Islamists that they are there for security, but some fear violence may explode at any minute.
