A large demonstration has been called for Cairo on Friday 6 April, which is likely to centre on Tahrir Square. There are frequent demonstrations, usually on Fridays, and centring on Tahrir Square, Cairo. Demonstrations also often take place elsewhere in Cairo, as well as other cities in Egypt, including Alexandria.
A number of protestors remain camped out in Tahrir Square in Cairo although vehicle access is not restricted. Mohammed Mahmoud Shaikh Rihan and Qasr al-Aini Streets all remain blocked off preventing access along them to Tahrir Square. There is an increased risk of transport delays due to traffic congestion around central Cairo.
