Egyptian journalist Sarah Carr blogged that police told her they had planned ahead not to allow any protests. Egypt's internal State Security dispatched hundreds of officers to critical points to prevent crowds from gathering.
However, blogger Mohammed Hamama reported a large demonstration at Mansoura University, about two hours north of Cairo. According to Hamama, around 2,000 students took to the streets to protest high tuition fees. He uploaded this video of the protest to YouTube:
In total 45 people were arrested around the country, including a journalist.
Many Egyptian activists and journalists use Twitter to spread news and rally people.
