Egypt's fault lines come to the fore

Liberals opt out of this Friday protests, accusing Islamic parties of hijacking the revolution.

    Friday was meant to symbolise a day of unity in Egypt's Tahrir Square. Instead, it exposed the fault lines.

    Liberals opted out of the protests on Friday, accusing Islamist parties of betrayal, and of hijacking their revolution.

    While the speeches in Tahrir Square talked of solidarity with the liberals, the views of some in the crowd were far from moderate.
