Egypt: Thousands rally for unity in Cairo’s Tahrir Square

May 14, 2011

Cairo (AMIPS) - Thousands of Egyptians rallied Friday in Tahrir Square calling for national unity after sectarian clashes and to express solidarity with the Palestinians.
Some held up crosses and others waved Palestinian flags as the numbers swelled in Cairo's iconic square, the epicenter of protests that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak on last February.
Activists have called for a march to neighbouring Gaza at the weekend to show solidarity with the Palestinians as they mark the "Nakba" or "catastrophe" which befell them following Israel's establishment in 1948.
