In Pictures: Tahrir's one-year anniversary

Images from the first anniversary of the Egyptian uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

    On January 25, 2011, Egyptians took to the streets in their tens of thousands to call for the removal of then president Hosni Mubarak. Eighteen days later, Mubarak stepped down. These images are from the one-year anniversary rally held in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the heart of the revolution, on Wednesday.
