Egypt revolution, 10 years on: Cairo's new homeless


Demonstrations that led to the overthrow of Egypt former president Hosni Mubarak started a decade ago on Jan. 25. But ten years later, the promise and hope that fueled the movement is fading away. Over the past several years, the president's government has cracked down on Egypt's informal housing settlements. Residents often only have one day to pack up and relocate to far away towns on the periphery of Cairo. Here is more from our team on the ground.

  • Egypt, 10 years on: From revolution to counter-revolution

    On February 11, 2011, after almost three decades in power, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned following 18 days of mass protests. But 10 years later, the ideals of the revolution have given way to another authoritarian military regime.

  • Egypt's revolution 10 years on: What happened to "bread, freedom & social justice"?

    Ten years on, we are examining the revolution that changed Egypt. The Arab Spring swept through North Africa and the Middle East and with it some hardline leaders were swept aside. Today is the annual day of the police in Egypt, President Abel Fattah al Sissi presided over commemorations of the role of Egyptian lawenforcement. A role that many activists say was at best heavy-handed back in 2011, and has continued it the same way. The scene a decade ago was so very different.
