An anti-government rally in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Tuesday drew a few thousand people, far less than what organizers had hoped for, amid appeals from the country’s military leaders to refrain from staging further protests.
The April 6 Youth Movement spoke of ‘a symbolic march to reiterate people’s specific demands.’
Human rights lawyer Emad Mubarak told the German Press Agency dpa that he and other activists in Tahrir Square had decided to disregard the army’s appeal.
