Egypt Destroys Mubarak Headquarters, Gives Land to Museum

Egypt finished the work of the 2011 uprising that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak, destroying his headquarters which had been set on fire during the rebellion.
The state seized the National Democratic Party's headquarters located in Cairo near Tahrir Squareafter the party was was dissolved in April 2011.
Demolition workers also began tearing down an office block that was once the centre of state bureaucracy.
Egypt's government approved the move in April and said that the land would be given to the neighbouring Egyptian Museum.
The BBC's Middle East editor Alan Johnston says that those who rose up against Mubarak will certainly welcome the demolition work.
But he says that many will be deeply disappointed that in other, more important ways, their revolution failed to fulfil their expectations.
