Egypt under Mubarak

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.

President Hosni Mubarak has held power in Egypt for 30 years. He has survived assassination attempts and a radical Islamist movement, and has maintained peace with Israel. Today the question is whether he can hold on to power as protesters take to the streets.

As Mubarak tries to save his authoritarian rule, five VII photographers take a glimpse at Egypt under his reign.
