Egyptian protesters push for more political reforms

CAIRO, March 25 (Reuters) - More than 2,000 people gathered

across the Egyptian capital on Friday to demand more political
reform, including a speedy trial of ousted president Hosni
Mubarak, state news agency MENA said.

One thousand protesters gathered in Tahrir square, epicentre

of Egypt's uprising, chanting nationalist slogans and calling
for Mubarak and other former government figures be tried for
graft. They also called for the release of political prisoners.

In a separate protest in downtown Cairo, 1,000 Coptic

Christians demanded the release of protesters they said were
detained in a previous demonstrations and called for speedy
investigations into recent incidents of sectarian strife.

And in a third protest, 500 people gathered in front of

Egypt's state television and radio building, demanding that
employees hired under Mubarak quit for what they called
"incorrect and misleading" coverage of anti-Mubarak protests.
