Cairo's Tahrir Square has been the epicenter of Egypt's uprising, as it was for this February 18 gathering.
- Demonstrators once again take to the streets in Cairo's Tahrir Square
- They want Egypt's military rulers to follow through on promised reforms
- Some also show support for opponents of the government in Libya
Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- Several thousand people protested in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday to urge Egypt's new rulers to implement reforms.
The demonstrators Friday asked Egypt's military rulers to follow through on promised changes. They pressed Egypt's Supreme Council to end an emergency law and release political prisoners, among other things. They also pressed for civilian representation in the government.
Generals took power in Egypt after an uprising prompted Hosni Mubarak to resign as president. The generals have said they plan to transfer power to a civilian government after elections this year.
The protests in Cairo unfolded in Tahrir Square, which was the site of massive demonstrations against Mubarak's rule.
Some carried signs in support of an uprising in Libya, where opponents of Moammar Gadhafi have taken control of much of the eastern part of the country.
