Voice of Egypt's silent majority

Diverse opinions about the protests in Cairo's Tahrir's Square come from citizens elsewhere in the city.

    Tens of thousands of demonstrators have packed Cairo's Tahrir Square after days of deadly clashes, demanding Egypt's military rulers step down and rejecting their choice of new prime minister.

    And in a city like Cairo, with its 20 million people, there are cities within cities. And often the voice of so many are drowned out by the incidents happening at the epicentre of events in Tahrir Square.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf speaks to some of the citizens.
