Tahrir Square Cairo

In the heart of Cairo lies Tahrir Square. The focal point of the 2011 Egyptian revolution still is a stronghold for thousand of supports, many of whom permanently occupy the square expressing their disdain for the current government and its followers. The atmosphere is extremely tense, people are suspicious of one and other and the overall feeling seems like tensions could explode at any moment and another mass protest could engulf the city. 

As I was taking this picture a man came up to me explaining that after this window was smashed four police officers killed his friend.
