Millions in Egypt demand removal of president

Protests’ scale exceeds uprising ousting Mubarak

The scale of the demonstrations, coming just one year after crowds in Tahrir Square cheered Morsi’s inauguration, appeared to exceed even the massive street protests in the heady final days of the uprising that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
