100,000 gather in Tahrir Square


As the Muslim Brotherhood and other Egyptian Islamic parties met with Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) today demanding the military steps down by June, 100,000 protesters gathered in Tahrir Square. The largest gathering this week.

His speech was met with boos and jeers.
