An Egyptian civilian kisses an Army soldier after troops took position at major junctions in central Cairo on January 29, 2011. Thousands of anti-regime demonstrators continue to pour onto Cairo's streets, demanding President Hosni Mubarak stand down the day after the veteran leader ordered the Army to tackle the deadly protests.
