Thousands of Egyptians on Monday gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square to attend the funeral of youth activist Gaber Salah, who was severely injured during clashes with security forces last Monday and died Sunday night. Activists have been gathering in the square to protest the seizure of new powers by Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. The demonstrations have been reminiscent of an uprising last year that led to the rise of Morsi's Islamist movement.
