Egypt Revolution Anniversary: Movers Of The Revolution

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of Egyptians gathered at Cairo's Tahrir Square on Wednesday to celebrate the first anniversary of the country's revolution. On January 25, 2011, tens of thousands of Egyptians gathered in the capital to demand the resignation of then president-Hosni Mubarak.
