Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians are massed in Tahrir Square in what can only be described as Egypt's Second Revolution in less than a year. Deaths are mounting and thousands have been injured, as the people demand that the Armed Forces give up power. So far the Field Marshal has agreed to hold Presidential elections in June, but this is not what the people are demanding. One danger is that the Arab Brotherhood will take over and begin killing Christians, if this goes on too long. Stirling

The cabinet's resignation on Monday comes as the number of protester deaths is on the rise, the Associated Press reported. The latest development also follows the resignation of the country's Culture Minister Emad Abu Ghazi earlier in the day. The country's Health Ministry says that at least 24 protesters have been killed, while another 1,830 have been injured over the past three days. Medical sources earlier put the death toll at 35.
Amid calls for a national government of salvation to be set up to face down the junta, the opposition figurehead Mohamed ElBaradei said he was ready to do "whatever it takes" to save Egypt from the deepening crisis. "I think what we've seen today is an excessive use of force, bordering on a slaughterhouse, against innocent civilians exercising their inalienable right to demonstrate," he told the Guardian. The interim authorities said the elections, due to begin on 28 November, would go ahead as planned, and thanked security officers for "self-restraint in dealing with the events". ElBaradei said: "It's yet another indication that Scaf and the current government are failing to govern, and I fully sympathise with the increasing calls coming from different quarters, including Tahrir, for a new government of national salvation that represents all shades of Egyptian society – one with full power. "I will do anything to save the country from falling apart, and what we are seeing right now is the country going down."
