Egypt's military warns protesters against violence

Egypt's military rulers have sternly warned protesters against "harming public interests" as demonstrators lay siege to Cairo's largest government building and threaten to expand their sit-in to other sites in the capital.
The warning came in a statement Tuesday, ahead of a planned rally by protesters demanding a wider purge of members of Hosni Mubarak's regime and bringing to justice police officers accused of killing protesters during Egypt's uprising.
Protesters have been camping out since Friday at Cairo's Tahrir Square, epicenter of the Jan. 25-Feb. 11 uprising. They vowed not to leave until their demands are met.
Earlier Tuesday, 30 men armed with knives and sticks stormed the protesters' tent camp at the square, wounding six.
