Egypt unrest: Striking doctors flock to Tahrir Square
10-Feb-2011 (one comment)

Striking doctors and a host of other workers have joined thousands of anti-government protesters in Egypt.

Medics wearing white coats streamed into Cairo's Tahrir Square alongside demonstrators who continue to call for President Hosni Mubarak to resign.

A key Cairo hospital was reported to have been closed by strike action as an estimated 3,000 staff walked out.

The renewed protests come after Egypt's foreign minister criticised US calls for Egypt to lift its emergency law.

Rebuffing Washington's calls to speed up the pace of political reform, Ahmed Aboul Gheit said Washington should not "impose" its will on "a great country".
