Rally keeps up reform pressure on Egypt`s leaders
Cairo: Thousands of people are rallying in Cairo`s Tahrir Square to keep up pressure on Egypt`s military rulers to carry out reforms.
The downtown square, site of Friday`s gathering, was the focus of an 18-day uprising that brought down president Hosni Mubarak on Feb 11. The Egyptian military took control, but has assigned government affairs to a caretaker Cabinet until elections can be held.
Uprising activists say they are worried the Army is not moving quickly enough on reforms, including repealing emergency laws, releasing political prisoners and removing members of Mubarak`s regime from power.
They have vowed to stage large rallies every Friday until their demands are met.
