Egyptian protesters demand Mubarak prosecution


CAIRO (AP) -- About 3,000 Egyptians are protesting in Cairo's central Tahrir Square holding banners and signs demanding prosecution of ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his regime.

One speaker in the square has vowed, "We are not leaving here until Mubarak is on trial," as the crowd chants, "The people want to try the deposed president."

Activists have called for a large gathering Friday to push for prosecutions of key members of the former regime, including Mubarak and his family, who are now under house arrest at a presidential palace in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
