Egypt VP: 'No Ending of the Regime'

Egypt’s Vice President Omar Suleiman issued a stern warning on Tuesday that there would be "no ending of the regime" in Egypt, and that the government "can't put up with" protests much longer.” But demonstrators are not taking heed. In fact, Cairo’s Tahrir square has swarmed with the largest number of anti-government activists yet, spurred on by the recent release of Google exec Wael Ghonim, who revealed his role as the anonymous creator of a galvanizing Facebook page shortly after being freed. The Egyptian military originally tried to check the identity cards of protesters entering Tahrir Square but gave up because of the huge crowds. Al Jazeera adds that tens of thousands of people turned out in Alexandria as well.
