Tahrir Square Cleared of Protesters

Egyptian troops and police forcibly cleared a small band of protesters from Tahrir Square Monday. The demonstrators, who'd gathered in early July, were calling for faster change and justice for demonstrators killed in the uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak earlier this year. Anchor Lisa Mullins gets an account of Monday's events from The World's Matthew Bell in Cairo.
