Egyptian protesters are back in force at Tahrir Square in central Cairo in a bid to oust the military regime that replaced former leader Hosni Mubarak nine months ago. FRANCE 24's team in Cairo looks at what triggered these fresh protests.

Egyptians are set to vote in legislative elections on November 28, nine months after former President Hosni Mubarak's regime was toppled.

FRANCE 24's François Picard and Vanessa Burggraf will present three programmes from Cairo featuring special reports on a range of issues including the future of the democratic movement, the hopes and aspirations of the Egyptian people and the global and regional implications of the revolution in the world's largest Arab nation.
