Egypt: Assailants attack protesters, injure 6

Egyptian anti-government protesters say about 30 assailants carrying knives and sticks stormed their tent camp in Cairo's central square, injuring six people.
Tuesday's attack came before a planned mass rally later in the day in Tahrir Square. Protester Waleed Soud says the attackers also hurled rocks. He says one attacker was seized and is being questioned about who sent the group.
Soud says a female journalist is among those hurt.
Assailants frequently attacked protesters in the square during a February uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
