For their part, three movements involved in the protest against Mubarak said in a statement that "security agents dressed in civilian clothes and a number of thugs broke into the Tahrir Square to intimidate the demonstrators in order to show that the Egyptian people is divided."

Opposition forces in Egypt have called on their supporters to continue demonstrating against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak, saying they would not negotiate with the new Vice President, Omar Suleiman, until Mubarak leaves power. Mubarak announced last night he would stay in office until September.
