Egypt Protests: Anti-Mubarak Clashes Continue For Second Day (PHOTOS)

Defying an official ban on protests, Egyptian anti-government activists continued to rock Cairo with a series of violent demonstrations for the second day.

National police forces used tear gas, beatings and live ammunition in an effort to disperse the mass protests, staged in a Tunisian-inspired effort to oust President Hosni Mubarak from office.
