Barbed wire blocked roads into Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the protests that toppled President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11.

Protesters cried "revolution, revolution" and brandished an effigy of Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, who heads the military council now ruling Egypt and is also defense minister.
