A year after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi came to power, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians have taken to Tahrir Square to call for his removal. Protestors accuse Morsi of failing to tackle economic issues like high gas and food prices as well as security issues.
More than half a dozen people have died and hundreds have been injured so far. But Morsi claims there will be no second revolution and that giving in to the cries for his ouster would only prolong chaos in Egypt. He has, however, acknowledged that the constitutional move to give himself more power last November was a mistake.
This is what Tahrir Square, which is already being referred to with the hashtag #June30 on Twitter and Instagram, looked like today. Fears of violence have escalated as thousands of Morsi supporters rallied in his defense.
