Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Thursday that the demands of protesters who have been gathering around Egypt for the last 17 days "are just and legitimate."

He said he had requested six constitutional amendments to answer protesters' reform demands and that he would lift hated emergency laws — but with the caveat, when security permitted, a promise that his vice president made earlier this week but was dismissed by protesters.
