Thousands gather in Cairo for 'Victory March'

Egyptians are holding nationwide celebrations to mark the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak.

Tahrir Square is once again the focus of the gathering in Cairo in scenes reminiscent of last Friday.

This time, however, the army has joined protesters, even handing out flags amid the carnival like atmosphere.

There is also a serious side to the march. As well as remembering the 365 people who died during the uprising, organisers want Egypt’s military rulers to release political prisoners, lift emergency rules and push through reforms.
