Thousands in Cairo celebrate the ousting of Hosni Mubarak

Tahrir square in Egypt's capital, Cairo, has been filled with tens of thousands of people, celebrating their historic victory a week ago in which Egypt's leader Hosni Mubarak was toppled, after 30 years in power.

There was no violence - instead, the atmosphere was festive, with military bands playing and people waving flags.
