Egypt

Protests start all over again


Published

Protests similar to those seen during Egypt’s Arab Spring have sprung up all over the country once more.

The protesters are claiming that their revolution has been hijacked. They are angry that all six police chiefs in the Mubarak trials were acquitted last week and they want to see the former president’s last prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq removed from the list of two finalists in the presidential campaign.

Tahrir Square, the symbolic centre of the revolution last year was packed with thousands of protesters over the weekend and last night.
