Egypt's Cabinet Resigns

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has accepted the resignation of Egypt’s Cabinet, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi said Tuesday.

The resignations come as protesters fill Cairo’s Tahrir Square for a fourth day to call for the downfall of the military-led government that took over after President Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down in February.

Tantawi denied the military wants to stay in power and said protesters are trying to “drag us back into the past.” He added the government is “trying hard to be tolerant.”

Twenty-nine protesters have died in the clashes since Saturday, said Hisham Sheeha, spokesman for Egypt’s Health Ministry. About 1,785 people have been injured, he said. (Source: CNN)
