Ed. Note:
Bloody riots in Egypt’s Tahrir Square entered their third day Monday, nine months after protests toppled former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and just a week ahead of the nation’s first parliamentary elections. Amid the violence, media reports say the country’s interim government has tendered its resignation, bowing to the demands of protestors angered over the military's continued grip on power. Estimates put the crowds in the tens of thousands, while Egyptian authorities say upwards of 30 people have been killed, with more than 1,500 injured.
