Tens of thousands of protesters have gathered in Cairo to press for speedier reforms from the Egyptian government. They have taken over Tahrir Square — the focus of the 18-day uprising earlier in the year — with security forces maintaining a discreet presence. Many activists are angry at the slow pace of change since President Hosni Mubarak's fall in February. Anchor Marco Werman talks with reporter Thanassis Cambanis in Cairo.
