More than million protesters have gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square Cairo in a rally billed as the day of departure calling on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to resign. Protesters have flooded into the square which has come under attack for the past two days by pro-Mubarak supporters.
Ahmed Naguib: "This is not just a revolt to topple a regime; this is a revolt for our dignity. We need justice. We need to punish those who committed atrocities and crimes against humanity in this square."
Hundreds of thousands of protesters are also gathering in Alexandria, Mansoura, and other cities in Egypt.
