Egyptians Hold Nationwide Protests To Demand Justice, Reforms

July 08, 2011

Thousands of Egyptians have taken to the streets around the country to demand justice for victims of ousted President Hosni Mubarak's regime.

Protesters also demanded that the country's interim military rulers set forth a clear plan of transition to democracy.

The nationwide demonstrations comes as riots and protests have been escalating in recent weeks over what many see as the reluctance of the military rulers to prosecute police and former regime officials responsible for the deaths of some 900 people during the protests that toppled Mubarak earlier this year.
