Muslim Brotherhood celebrate Parliament opening

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood gathered at Egypt's parliament building as newly elected body opened for its first session. The political wing of the brotherhood, the Freedom and Justice Party, secured around 45% of the seats in the first post-Mubarak parliament.

Other groups gathered around the parliament today, including groups calling for the elected assembly to realise the demands of the revolution which began a year ago this week.

Security was tight around the area, various different marches including by workers, artists, families of the martyrs and the 'no to military trials' campaign all headed towards parliament.
