Further unrest in Egypt


There was a further day of unrest yesterday as protestors once again took to the streets of Cairo.

Reports say that around 10,000 people are protesting and that as many as 1,000 have already been arrested in a government crackdown. The protests are being described as the most significant since President Hosni Mubarak came to power in 1981 following President Sadat’s assassination. Mubarak is expected to seek a further term in the presidential elections that take place in September this year.
