Egypt is a beautiful country with a lot of history. Millions of tourists visit this country every year. For a long time the country was controlled by one man, President Mubarak. He controlled this country for 30 years.

In February 2011, the people wanted a change. The president had to finish his work. The army took control of the country and they promised to give control to people after 6 months. These promises were made 10 months ago and nothing happened. People are not happy again and at the weekend they protested in the streets. 33 people were killed during fights with the army and police.
