Egyptian protesters rally around Google Inc. exec

Egyptian protesters are rallying around a recently released Google Inc. executive as they try to maintain the momentum of a mass protest calling for President Hosni Mubarak's ouster.
Activists also called for 1 million people to fill the central Tahrir Square on Tuesday.
The protests already have brought the most sweeping changes since Mubarak took power nearly 30 years ago, but activists are insisting Mubarak step down immediately.
Some 90,000 have signed a Facebook page calling Google marketing manager Wael Ghoneim to be their leader, and they expect him to appear in the square Tuesday afternoon, a day after he was released from detention. Ghoneim has said he was the administrator of a Facebook page used to organize Egypt's unprecedented pro-democracy uprising.
