Security forces are moving to clear two sit-in camps in support of the country's ousted president Mohammed Morsi, Egyptian state TV says.
Security officials say forces are firing tear gas into the larger of the two protest locations in Cairo, the encampment in the eastern Nasser City neighbourhood.
At the smaller protest site outside the Cairo University campus is Giza, where armoured carriers were securing the area.
The pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV is showing images of clouds of smoke from the tear gas, collapsed tents and tires burning at the Nasser City protest site.
At least 250 people have died in clashes in Egypt following Mr Morsi's July 3 ousting in a military coup.
