Supporters of Hosni Mubarak have staged a number of rallies around Cairo, saying the Egyptian president represents stability amid growing insecurity and branding those who seek his departure “traitors”.

“Yes to Mubarak, to protect stability,” read one banner in a crowd of 500 gathered near the state television headquarters, about a kilometre from Tahrir Square, the epicentre of the ongoing anti-Mubarak protests.
