VIDEO: Protest marches converge at Defence Ministry

Around 10 marches demanding an end to military rule converge near the Ministry of Defence


A day before the one year anniversary of the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak, around 10 marches from around Cairo gathered by the Ministry of Defence to protest Egypt's military rule.
The Ministry is lead by Field Marshall Mohamed Hussain Tantawi - the country's de facto leader since Mubarak's ouster. Thousands of demonstrators chanted slogans against the ruling Military Council and demanded an immediate transfer of power to civilian rule.
