Brief: Protests in Egypt reach their second anniversary

CAIRO (AP) - Egyptians delivered an angry backlash against President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood on Friday, Jan. 25, marking the second anniversary of the start of the country's revolution with tens of thousands filling major squares and streets around the country to call for a new regime change.
Rallies turned to clashes near Tahrir Square and in multiple cities around the country, with police firing tear gas and protesters throwing stones. At least four people, including a 14-year-old boy, were killed in the day's worst clashes in the city of Suez, where protesters set ablaze a building that once housed the city's local government.
More pain might come if the government implements unpopular austerity measures to secure a loan from the International Monetary Fund.
