CAIRO — Some of the young activists who launched the uprising that toppled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Monday they are skeptical about the military's pledges to hand over power to a democratically elected government.

Their concerns came as British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Cairo to meet with top Egyptian officials and "make sure this really is a genuine transition" to civilian rule.

In a meeting with Western diplomats in Cairo, the activists appealed to the US and Europe to change their policies toward governments in the Middle East.

"It is time that United States and Europe revise and correct their policies in the region," said Bahey al-Din Hassan, director of the human rights institute that hosted the meeting. "This has always been our message, and we hope it won't fall on a deaf ears."
