Egypt is still very much an unsettled country when it comes to moving forward towards a democracy.

Mass prayers in Tahrir Square in the capital of Cairo today proved just that, as tens of thousands of people came out despite the heat to show their opposition to the current military rulers. Some protestors held signs saying 'The age of tyranny will not return, we are continuing our revolution', others chanted 'God Is Great'

The military stepped in after President Hosni Mubarak's downfall, but now critics say the military has 'hijacked reform' and many people are unhappy about some of the popular presidential hopefuls being disqualified.

Hosni Mubarak was unseated last February and is currently awaiting the verdict in a corruption and murder trial. The first presidential poll is set to be held next month.
