Egypt Protests: Anti-Mubarak Protestors Attacked By Pro-Government Loyalists For Second Day

Tahrir Square resembled a war zone early Thursday as supporters of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak attacked anti-Mubarak protesters in the second day of violent clashes in downtown Cairo.

Protesters have since shifted out of Tahrir Square onto open ground near the Nile River, but Mubarak loyalists will reportedly face their greatest opposition on Friday, the main prayer day of the Muslim week. Anti-government organizers are said to be calling for a redoubling of efforts to force the beleaguered Egyptian leader to step down.
