Egypt marks one year without Mubarak

Thousands of Egyptians are marking the first anniversary of the overthrow of their former president.

Hosni Mubarak resigned on February 11th last year following weeks of protests against his three-decade rule.

“I’m here because nothing has changed in Egypt. Last year, we called for freedom, equality and dignity,” one female protester told euronews.

“Nothing has changed. It’s not true that we are all hooligans.”

Our correspondent in Cairo says at least 15,000 people gathered outside the Defence Ministry yesterday to voice their anger at the country’s military rulers.

The protesters said there were as many as 100,000.
