Egyptians Take Down Unwanted Mubarak Portraits

Sunday, 13 February 2011 08:45 AM EST

CAIRO, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Egyptians are removing portraits of ousted President Hosni Mubarak which have hung in public and private institutions throughout his three decades in power.

The 82-year-old's picture was quietly taken down at the main cabinet office on Sunday, a Reuters witness said.

At the state press centre, a large image of the toppled leader woven into a rug was taken away, an employee said.

Photographs of Mubarak also disappeared from luxury hotels.

While Mubarak's image was a common sight in Cairo, he never went to the lengths of other autocrats in the region, such as Iraq's former leader Saddam Hussein, who filled the country with his likeness in statues, portraits, monuments and on banknotes.
