CAIRO - Hundreds of Egyptian activists gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday to launch a day of demonstrations demanding a clear road map to democracy and an end to military trials for civilians.

People who spearheaded an uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February gave a "Correcting the Path" billing to the latest protests. The demonstrations could give a sign of popular sentiment towards the ruling military council since Mubarak went on trial last month.

Islamists, including the political party set up by the Muslim Brotherhood - Egypt's best organized political force after the dissolution of Mubarak's National Democratic Party - distanced themselves from the planned protests.
