Egyptians Reject New P.M.

Tens of thousands of protesters chanting, "Leave, leave!" are rapidly filling up Cairo's Tahrir Square in what promises to be a massive demonstration to force Egypt's ruling military council to yield power. The Friday rally is dubbed by organizers as "The Last Chance Million-Man Protest," and comes one day after the military offered an apology for the killing of nearly 40 protesters in clashes on side streets near Tahrir over the last week.(AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)

    Egyptian protesters gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square for a “last-chance Friday" movement to demand the immediate removal of the country’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces in favor of civilian rule. Dozens have died and even more have been wounded in clashes between demonstrators and police that have gone on since Saturday. Parliamentary elections have been scheduled for Monday in an attempt to quell protests. But the military appointed a new government head, a former prime minister under ousted president Hosni Mubarak—a move that has angered the protesters. The White House urged Egypt's military rulers to hand over power. This is the Obama administration's first public move to push Egypt toward a democratic turn.
