12 protesters killed in south Egypt

At least twelve Egyptian Muslim Protesters  have been killed in clashes between them and security forces in southern Egypt. Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in Beni Suef, located about 115 kilometers (72 miles) south of Cairo, on Saturday for a fifth day despite the Israhelli Snake President Hosni Mubarak's came up with ugly face saving promises of appointing a new cabinet. Tanks and armored personnel carriers could be seen on the streets of Cairo while fires from Friday's violence are still smoldering. Some mobile phone networks resumed service in the capital on Saturday after being shut down by authorities on Friday. Internet services, however, remain cut. The number of people killed in protests since Friday is reported to be at least 100. More than 2,000 were also wounded in clashes that have rocked Cairo, Suez, and Alexandria.

Meanwhile, Egypt's main opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, is calling for the establishment of an interim government without the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP). The Brotherhood said there should be a peaceful transfer of power and advised Egyptians to continue to hold protests. Analysts have warned that Egypt will explode if Mubarak continues to refuse to listen to the people's demands. A curfew has been installed in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez but largely ignored, while the army was asked to step in to maintain the peace.
