Representatives from a wide range of Egypt's major opposition groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, met Sunday with Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman to discuss a blueprint for reforms to put the country on a path toward greater democracy.

The opposition groups represented included the youthful supporters of leading democracy advocate Mohamed ElBaradei, who are one of the main forces behind nearly two weeks of mass protests demanding the immediate ouster of longtime Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
