Egypt: Anniversary of Mubarak's Fall Marked With Protests


On the second anniversary of the fall of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, new protests broke out across the country, CBN News reports. Police dispersed protesters with tear gas and water hoses outside the presidential palace on Monday. Egyptians are angry over the lack of political and economic reform under President Mohammed Morsi; the administration has instead installed more hard-line Islamists and rammed through a constitution that favors strict Islamic law. Morsi has also used tactics similar to the Mubarak regime, such as trying to grab more government control and cracking down on protesters.
