    Jan 25 - a Bloody Anniversary


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter MahmoudGamal submitted these photographs as Egyptians marked the second anniversary of the Tahrir Square protests.
    - Echerneff, CNN iReport producer

    On the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution, the streets of almost all governorates were filled with protesters. Just like they protested on January 25, 2011 against Mubarak and against SCAF rule on January 25, 2012, today they protested against the Muslim Brotherhood rule.
    Marches flooded the streets condemning the MB-sponsored constitution, the increasing prices of life essentials and the "Ikhwanization" of the Egyptian institutions.
    As clashes continued in Qasr El Einy and Sheikh Rihan streets, they erupted in other cities all over the country between protesters and Central Security Forces. By late afternoon the Shubra march was met by civilians in Tawfeekeya throwing glass bottles and rocks and shooting bird shot at them from above the Ikhwan Online office building. Clashes continued for a few minutes until protesters were able to stop them and the march continued to Tahrir.
    By the evening clashes increased fiercely all over the country between protesters and the CSF. Endless number of tear gas canisters, Molotov cocktails, rocks and birdshot were seen everywhere. Martyrs fell in Suez killed by live ammunition. And what was supposed to be the Tahrir sit-in got dispersed, but after a few minutes protesters got back to the square.
