    Hundreds of thousands of protesters have turned out across Egypt to demand that Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, step down.

    The protests in Cairo centred on Tahrir Square, where multitudes gathered in a largely peaceful demonstration.

    Protests were also held in the cities of Alexandria, Mahalla and Giza.
