Tahrir Square is getting a makeover

CAIRO — Or is it being airbrushed? Cairo's city government is cleaning up Egypt's symbolic center of protest.

Young activists immediately repainted the wall, throwing up new, angry pieces chiding the government of President Mohamed Morsi for attempting to “erase” the revolution.
