Riots erupt in Egypt

A man identified only as Fathi, wearing the uniform of a captain in the Egyptian army, is carried by demonstrators on Tahrir, or Liberation Square, in Cairo, Egypt, Monday Jan. 31, 2011. A coalition of opposition groups called for a million people to take to Cairo's streets Tuesday to demand the removal of President Hosni Mubarak, the clearest sign yet that a unified leadership was emerging for Egypt's powerful but disparate protest movement. In an apparent attempt to show change, Mubarak named a new government, but the lineup dominated by regime stalwards was greeted with scorn by protesters. <span class=meta>(Ben Curtis)</span>
