Protest against Mubarak held in Cairo
Hundreds of Egyptians rallied in Cairo on Monday to protest against a new term in office for President Hosni Mubarak and against steps to enable his son Gamal to succeed him. The protesters gathered in front of Cairo University.
Organised by the Egyptian Movement for Change, the demonstrators also included Marxists, Nasserites, liberals and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Leaflets handed out at the rally called for a constitutional amendment which would limit the president to two, four-year terms in power, instead of an indeterminate number of six-year terms.
The demonstrators condemned the decision of some opposition parties to postpone demands for constitutional reform until after Mubarak's re-election vote.
