About two million people gathered at the Tahrir Square on Tuesday, defying a leader they lived in fear of for much of the past 30 years.

Tuesday attracted the largest and the most diverse crowd of a week of demonstrations, men and women, young and old, workers and unemployed, all camped in the heart of the city demanding the ouster of Hosni Mubarak.
