Once again, Cairo’s Tahrir Square is thronging with protesters. On Tuesday, more than 200,000 people gathered in opposition to President Mohammed Morsi’s far-reaching new decrees.

Egyptian police threw tear gas canisters into the crowd, which is comparable in size to those of the 2011 Arab Spring. According to reports, one middle-aged man died from inhaling tear gas on Tuesday.
