Meanwhile on Tahrir square

Yesterday the Egyptian army cleared the Tahrir square in Cairo of protesters. Once seen as the symbol for the Arab Spring, the Square was the scene of a big tent camp since the 8th of July. Protesters took hold of the square once again to show their agitation about the slow pace the reforms in Egypt are being put into motion. Tomorrow former president Mubarak is supposed to face a judge, but since he is currently in hospital that might be very unlikely.

Update: Mubarak on his way to the courtroom in Cairo.
