Scenes From the Egyptian Protests

Protesters have turned out by the millions throughout Egypt to demand the resignation of President Mohamed Morsi this week, gathering at places including Tahrir Square in Cairo, where just over two years ago protesters brought down the regime of Hosni Mubarak.

Their gathering would eventually lead to Morsi's ouster as well on July 3, 2013. In his place, Adly Mansour, chairman of the Supreme Constitutional Court—a judge appointed to Egypt's constitutional court by Hosni Mubarak—was sworn in as interim president.
