Photo: Trucks jammed full of riot police officers lined one side of Tahrir square, preparing for 3:00 p.m. - the time set for protest kick-off.  Friday prayers would finish at 1:30 or 2:00pm - Muslim men are required in the Qur'an to attend Friday prayers.
Photo: Just a few hours before the protests were due to start, this little boy was still plying his wares just off of Tahrir Square, offering us some Egyptian bread.
