Protesters agreed with the Interior Ministry Thursday to open Tahrir Square for traffic Friday evening after their protest to demand the trial of President Mohamed Morsy.
The ministry is to present to them a timetable for the removal of all concrete barriers from Cairo’s streets.
The move was in response to an initiative by media personality Amr al-Leithy.
Protesters have been staging a sit-in in the square since the second anniversary of the 25 January revolution, protesting against Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.
