Egypt Uprising Anniversary: Back to Square One?
Issued on: Modified:
It is three years since hundreds of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets with one aim: to rid their country of corruption and police brutality. Just 18 days later, Hosni Mubarak, the man who had ruled the country for 30 years, stepped down. Three years on, the country's new constitution gives broad powers to the army - any challenge to the regime is firmly repressed. Today, many activists who took to the streets in 2011 feel disillusioned.
