Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government asked the country's parliament Sunday for a two-year extension to emergency laws that have been in place since 1981, despite growing rejection from opposition groups. The laws, instituted after the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, give security forces broad powers to arrest and detain suspects. Legislators were debating the extension, and a decision was expected later Sunday.
