Protesters crowd Tahrir Square, demand Mubarak trial

Reuters reports:

CAIRO — Protesters packed Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday, piling pressure on the ruling military council to meet demands including the prosecution of Hosni Mubarak in one of the biggest demonstrations since he was ousted.

Thousands of people waved red, white and black Egyptian flags in scenes reminiscent of the height of the uprising that helped ignite protests against autocrats across the Arab world.

Hundreds of thousands crammed into Tahrir Square, the main theater for the protests that swept Mubarak from power, leaving in charge the army led by Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi.
