Egypt erupts

Need to Know presents VII Magazine, a journalistic partnership with VII Photo, which gives readers unprecedented intimate access to the work of the world’s leading photojournalists. Every day, our partners at VII showcase a new photo, and each week, a new video or audio slideshow.

The upheaval in Egypt continues to dominate the news as huge numbers of protesters, both pro- and anti-Mubarak, clash in the streets. Last week, VII Magazine’s feature “Egypt under Mubarak” tried to give a sense of the repression that led to this situation. In this week’s photo slideshow, “Egypt erupts,” VII photographers Ron Haviv, Franco Pagetti and Benedicte Kurzen show us the defiance and anger that has been pouring out into Egypt’s streets since the protests began January 25.
