Egyptians speak out against graffiti removal

Move to clean up walls painted with slogans, seen as symbol of uprising, draws criticism from people.

    There has been an outcry in Egypt over the government's move to clean up graffiti.

    Authorities have painted over a wall at iconic Tahrir Square that was covered in revolutionary slogans, and was seen as a symbol of the uprising.

    But activists and artists believe the graffiti is a symbol of resistance, and pledge voices on the walls won't be silenced.
