Army urges Egypt back to work


For 18 days, Tahrir Square was the focus of Egypt’s discontent.

It came to embody the spirit of the revolt which led to the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak.

Now, it is once again a roundabout, albeit one surrounded by tanks.

The US, UK and Saudi Arabia have been asked to boost Egypt’s economy, hard-hit by the unrest. And they are not the only ones.

The Arab League’s Amr Moussa says Arab governments have also agreed to offer to help with development.

After the revolution, Egypt is now trying to re-group. Facing a wave of strikes, the governing military council has urged people to get back to work and avoid more damage being done to the economy.
