Egyptian police fired tear gas at anti-government protesters in Cairo on Saturday, as the country marked the anniversary of a 2011 uprising that overthrew veteran president Hosni Mubarak.

Police dispersed the protesters soon after they gathered outside a Cairo mosque.

They included both Islamist supporters of ousted president Mohamed Mursi and activists who accuse the military of hijacking the government.
