After being erected in late 2011, authorities bring down a Downtown Cairo security wall intended to keep protesters away from government buildings
Police and military personnel bring down a Downtown Cairo security wall in Qasr El-Aini street, a major thoroughfare leading to Tahrir Square.
The wall was erected in late 2011 to prevent protesters from gaining access to the nearby interior ministry's headquarters and the buildings housing Egypt's upper house of parliament and cabinet headquarters.
Update: the concrete wall has now been replaced by a large metal barrier
