Salafist Front says it will join Egypt protests

The Egyptian Salafist Front announced Monday night that it would join the million-man march in downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square on Tuesday to protest against the country's ruling military council, and the handling of this week's protests in which at least 33 people have been killed and thousands wounded.
The conservative Islamist movement called on the military council to draft a timetable for a transition of power to a civilian government by April 30, 2012. It also demanded speedy trials for those responsible for killing protesters, and compensation for the families of those who have either been killed or injured.
The Salafist Front called on Egyptians to join Tuesday's nation-wide protests.
