Demanding change in Egypt

President Mubarak's decision to sack his government is unlikely to quench Egyptians' thirst for change.

    Tens of thousands of Egyptians ignored the nighttime curfew and took to the streets of Cairo for another day of protests, setting fire to police vehicles and the ruling party's headquarters.

    A population generally viewed as being apathetic seems to have finally found its political voice.

    But with President Hosni Mubarak's recent pronouncements unlikely to quench the thirst for change displayed on the streets, the outcome of Egypt's protests remains to be seen.
