CAIRO - Egyptians gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday, after a week of demonstrations, to tell the ruling generals they are failing to meet demands to reform the system.

But the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's most organized group, said it was not participating and said the authorities must have time to respond to demands first made at a mass rally last week.

The split partly reflects caution in the Brotherhood, banned under ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, about riling the army under which it now has unprecedented freedom.

Analysts said it also indicates the gap between the Brotherhood's cautious approach and a new generation of activists, who are less well established but determined to keep up the pressure.
