Mubarak sacks Cabinet


Following five days of unrest in Egypt, last night President Mubarak sacked his Cabinet and promised reforms. However, this does not appear to have been enough for the thousands of protesters who have been on the streets in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez. The protesters want President Mubarak himself to go.

Tens of thousands of people have been on the streets and recent reports suggest that 25 civilians and 10 policemen have died so far. The protests are continuing as this was being posted.
