Scenes from the Market Basket rally

A crowd estimated at more than 2,000 gathered at Demoulas Super Markets' Tewksbury, Mass., headquarters Friday to call for a return of Arthur T. Demoulas, who was fired as president by the company's board of directors late last month. The protest followed an unfulfilled deadline Thursday set by some employees to return Demoulas to his role.
