Tens of thousands of Egyptians have returned to Tahrir Square to protest against the military junta, in one of the biggest protests seen in the country since the toppling of Hosni Mubarak.

Although there have been scattered demonstrations against the ruling generals in recent months, Friday’s rally was the largest and most explicit display of public opposition to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (Scaf) since it took power in February this year.

Reprising many of the slogans that dominated the anti-Mubarak uprising, protesters chanted: “The people want the downfall of the field marshal [referring to the Scaf head, Mohamed Hussein Tantawi]” and “We’re not leaving, he is leaving.”

The protest brought together Egyptians from across the political spectrum, 10 days before nationwide parliamentary elections get under way. Some liberal parties decided to boycott the rally and criticised the prevalence of the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafi groups in the square.
