Egypt demos mass for Mubarak ‘departure day’


Egyptian protesters were massing on Friday for sweeping “departure day” demonstrations to force President Hosni Mubarak to quit after he said he would like to step down but fears ensuing chaos.

Thousands who had bunkered down for the night in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, focal point of an unprecedented uprising against Mubarak now in its 11th day, were joined from early morning by protesters who began streaming in from across the city, correspondents said.

Opposition leaders have designated Friday as “departure day” for Mubarak and have called for gigantic demonstrations across the nation after the weekly prayers.
