Police prepared Egypt's capital on Tuesday for what online activists said would be a "Day of Wrath" against the government, taking inspiration from a revolt by Tunisians who toppled their authoritarian president this month.

Police unloaded metal barriers in trucks in areas were protests were expected and fire vehicles with water cannons were parked on the side of quiet early morning roads. The protest has been called on an annual holiday to honour the police.
