Egypt Curfew Fails: Demonstrations Continue
Egypt Demonstrators Ignore Curfew, Torch Buildings
Egyptian protestors have ignored the curfew, and President Hosni Mubarak's promise to reshuffle the government has not diffused the tension. The NDP Party headquarters has been torched, along with police vehicles.
Meanwhile, Egypt's parliamentary speaker Fathy Surour tried to reassure anyone who was listening that Mubarak was still in control of Egypt, even as Mubarak's speech seemed only to anger the demonstrators further.
A building belonging to the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) was torched, and reports of looting of numerous government buildings have also emerged.
In the eastern city of Suez, at least 11 people were killed and 170 wounded, Al Jazeera has learned.
At least 1,030 people were wounded during Friday's protests, some in a serious condition with bullet wounds, medical sources said.
