CAIRO - A few hundred protesters defied an army demand to quit Cairo's Tahrir Square on Monday, vowing to stay until Egypt's ruling military council heeds their demand for civilian rule and a deeper purge of corrupt officials.

The mostly young demonstrators, some of them unemployed, have blocked roads to the square with barbed wire since Friday, when hundreds of thousands gathered for one of the biggest demonstrations since president Hosni Mubarak was ousted.

The army has kept its distance since a failed attempt to remove the remainder of the protesters on Friday night.
