CAIRO — Protest leaders say they have met with Egypt's prime minister to discuss ways to ease President Hosni Mubarak out of office so negotiations can begin on the nation's future.




Abdel-Rahman Youssef, a youth activist, said he and other protest figures met with Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq late Friday. He underlines the meeting dealt only with ways to arrange Mubarak's departure and that protests will continue until that happens.




Under one proposal, Mubarak would deputize Vice President Omar Suleiman with his powers and step down "in some way, either in a real departure or a political one," Youssef said.
