Thousands have participated in the latest martyr's funeral prayers in Tahrir Square. The funeral marched from Kasr El-Ainy Hospital, where Mostafa Ahmed Hassan, aged 35, had been hospitalized and recently died. He had a bullet in his head, having been shot on January 28 during Egypt’s revolution.

The march, which started at the hospital, marched through Kasr El-Ainy Street and ended in Tahrir Square where thousands are still staging a sit-in pressing for the revolution’s demands to be met, and where the prayers were conducted.

Military officials and police surrounding the council of ministers and parliament, located around Kasr El-Ainy Street, and performed the military salute as the funeral march passed by.
