U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton toured Cairo's Tahrir Square on Wednesday (March 16), smiling, waving and shaking hands as she visited the heart of the revolt that toppled long-time U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak from power. Secretary Clinton is the highest U.S. official to visit since Mubarak's 30-year rule ended on Feb. 11. Flanked by security men, Clinton shook hands with surprised pedestrians including a middle-aged woman in a Muslim headscarf and an unshaven man who called out "Welcome to Tahrir Square." Speaking to reporters during her roughly 15-minute stroll in the square, Clinton said "it was very exciting and moving for me to go to Tahrir Square and to have some sense of what those amazing days must have been like here in Cairo."
