Egyptian military calls for end to demonstrations

CAIRO — The Egyptian military called Wednesday for an end to more than a week of demonstrations demanding Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak step down immediately after nearly 30 years in power.
"Your message has arrived, your demands became known," military spokesman Ismail Etman said on state television in an address directed to young protesters. "You are capable of bringing normal life to Egypt."
Internet service also began returning to Egypt after days of an unprecedented cutoff by the government.
