In Cairo protests by hundreds of Egyptians continued into Tuesday night despite attempts by riot police to disperse them.

Most of them were students defying a new law which bans demonstrations without prior police approval.

Activists have described the legislation as a violation of their right to protest.

Egypt will hold a referendum on an amended constitution which includes the new law in December.
