Egyptian protesters gather on the morning of the first anniversary of the 25th January uprising in Tahrir square, on Wed. Jan. 25, 2012 in Cairo, Egypt.

Reuters reporting from Cairo: Egyptians head to Tahrir Square on Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak with some seeking a new revolt against army rule and others celebrating the changes already achieved.

It is a year since protesters inspired by an uprising in Tunisia took to the streets in Egypt and the January 25 anniversary has exposed divisions in the Arab world's most populous country over the pace of democratic change.
