Egyptians Celebrate First Anniversary of Uprising

Ad Feedback

Thousands gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of the uprising in Egypt that overthrew former President Hosni Mubarak.

Islamic political groups have all but taken over since the revolution.

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafist al-Nour party won three-quarters of the seats in what's been touted as Egypt's first democratically elected parliament. But some Western analysts say it could be the last.

A military council is currently leading Egypt, but it's supposed to hand over power by the end of June when Egypt elects a new president.

Meanwhile, attacks against Egyptian Christians have increased dramatically over the past year.
