Violent Protests Mark Tahrir Square Uprising Anniversary in Cairo

TIME

Protests continued in the streets of Cairo on Sunday, following the death of a socialist activist who was shot and killed at a rally Saturday marking the fourth anniversary of the Tahir Square uprising that overthrew Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.

At least 15 were killed in protests across the city as police officers opened fire, according to Reuters. Security forces had been deployed across the city in an attempt to prevent a repeat of the dozens of deaths during last year’s anniversary.
