Egyptian Protesters Defy Curfew

Thousands demand the president's resignation


Around 3,000 protesters in Suez organised on Monday night a protest to march from al-Arba'een Square to al-Geish Street to demand ending the 30-day curfew President Mohamed Mursi has imposed on three Suez Canal cities.

Mursi on Sunday declared a state of emergency on Port Said, Suez, and Ismailia for 30-days.

Army forces deployed their troops in these cities.

Prime Minister Hisham Kandil's cabinet earlier today approved a draft law that gives the military the authority to arrest citizens.
