Christians in Cairo join demos to support fellow Arabs

CAIRO -- As the Israeli armed forces continue to pound Lebanon, protests have sprung up in support of the besieged country. In Egypt demonstrations against Israel have been an almost daily occurrence since its first incursion into Gaza more than three weeks ago.

BBC: Egyptian papers protest over law

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Egyptian papers protest over law:

"Some two dozen Egyptian newspapers are suspending publication for a day to protest against a new law they say will prevent them investigating corruption.

The papers will not appear on Sunday and journalists plan to stage a demonstration outside parliament.

President Hosni Mubarak promised two years ago that he would abolish prison sentences for media offences.

But a new draft law makes it a crime punishable by prison to question the financial integrity of individuals.

Editors of the newspapers taking part in the protest are hoping that public opinion will pressure the government into changing its position."
