Protesters determined to bring down Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak are once again out in force in the capital Cairo.
Further demonstrations and a general strike have also been called to press the opposition’s demands for democracy.
A march, dubbed ‘protest of millions’ has been organised for tomorrow. That could point to an end game in the political crisis.
In the city’s Tahrir Square, troops and demonstrators were camped out side by side. The military has yet to move in on the activists in what remains a relatively peaceful stand-off.
But the president has ordered the police back on to the streets. That could upset the equilibrium with many ordinary Egyptians blaming those security forces for the 100 or so deaths since the violent unrest began.
