Thousands Call for Civilian Rule in Egypt

Thousands of protesters and activists gathered in Cairo's Liberation Square and several other cities following the Friday Prayers, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The Egyptian protesters, who toppled the regime of former President Hosni Mubarak several weeks ago, have called for the resignation of all officials loyal to the Mubarak regime.

They also demand a speedy trial of Mubarak himself, as well an investigation into the conduct of officials responsible for the violence used against civilians during weeks of popular protests.

Demonstrators say they will continue their protests until all their demands are met.

The protests come weeks after Mubarak handed over power to Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which is headed by Defense Minister Gen. Mohammed Tantawi.

Egypt's army has recently promised to lift the emergency rule ahead of the slated parliamentary and presidential elections.

Egyptians say that they are skeptical about a rapid transition towards democracy and civilian rule and maintain that demonstrations will continue until all their demands are met.

Activists demand the release of political prisoners, the lifting of a 30-year-old state of emergency and the disbandment of the military court.

The developments come as people across the Arab world are holding another day of rage against their autocratic rulers.
