Tahrir Square the Day After: In Photos and Video

Victorious, Cairo's protesters linger to celebrate, clean up, and rally

On January 12, the day after Hosni Mubarak resigned as president of Egypt, many of the protesters who had spent two and a half weeks in Tahrir Square stayed there. They weren't protesting anymore -- they were celebrating their successful uprising against Mubarak, cleaning up the square, mourning those who had been killed, and planning for what comes next. Here is photo and video from the day in Tahrir.
