At least one million protesters have rallied across Egypt calling on President Hosni Mubarak to leave office. The protests in Cairo and in other major cities were unprecedented and the biggest to date since the demonstrations began more than a week ago. In the capital’s Tahrir Square, the main focal point for the opposition, people defied a curfew well into the evening to continue their call for Mubarak to go.

It was a similar scene earlier in the day as the vast numbers of protesters spilled on to the streets. Many had been emboldened by the army’s announcement the day before that it would not crush the demonstrations. That move by the military appears to be a decisive turning point, leaving Mubarak with few options. Earlier, he agreed for his government to hold talks with the opposition, something they have dismissed until he himself steps down.

It means the president’s time in office appears to be hanging by a thread. Like most analysts, the protesters seemed to sense it is not a question of if, but when and how Mubarak goes.
