Cairo, Egypt - February 2, 2011: On a particularly violent day in the 18 days of demonstrations that would lead to the overthrow President Mubarak, an emotion-filled anti-government demonstrator holds his hands in the air moments after rising from prayer, dirt still on his forehead and nose. Clashes with government supporters were ongoing on the edges of the square. The banner in the background reads, 'The people demand the downfall of the regime.'
