VIDEO: Masses in Tahrir demand transfer of power

A number of marches head towards a packed Tahrir Square to demand the military hands over power to civilian rule


by Simon Hanna
A march from the Cairo suburb of Mohandiseen is once of a series of marches that heads towards downtown's Tahrir Square, calling for a transfer of power from military rule to a civilian authority.
The march comes one week after clashes erupted in Tahrir square after riot police and military police fired a barrage of tear gas and birdshot at protesters, resulting in over 40 deaths and over 3000 wounded.
