Crowds began to pack Tahrir Square and the surrounding streets on Friday to mark two years since the revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak from power.


/Al Jazeera
Protesters scaled monuments during the demonstration in central Cairo, with many calling for the downfall of President Mohamed Morsi.


/Al Jazeera
Protesters used flares in the demonstration, which started on Friday, and highlighted popular discontent with a perceived lack of progress made towards democracy.


/Al Jazeera
The demonstration united tens of thousands of Egyptians, marching together in the country's capital on Friday.


/Al Jazeera
The protests began peacefully, but a burning desire for change and a desire of security forces to maintain control of demonstrations meant that tension was certain to escalate.


/Al Jazeera
As security forces attempted to block demonstrators from sensitive areas such as the interior ministry, stones were thrown from the crowd. On the second day, security forces were also seen throwing stones.


/Al Jazeera
The "Guy Fawkes mask", popularised by graphic novel and movie "V for Vendetta" was made globally synonymous with protest due to its use by Anonymous and Occupy groups around the world.


/Al Jazeera
The clashes continued into Saturday night, with a violent fringe of football fans claiming "revenge" for the deaths of fellow "Ultras" in Port Said last year.

Protesters also started fires in a bid to create a smokescreen to hinder security forces' use of tear gas.
