CAIRO, May 27 (UPI) -- Tens of thousands of Egyptians rallied in Tahrir Square and across the country Friday to oppose stalling on reform by the military.
In Alexandria, 20,000 came out to call for the abolition of city councils controlled by the former ruling party, al-Masry al-Youm reported.
In Sharm el-Sheikh, where former President Hosni Mubarak fled after resigning Feb. 11, hundreds demanded that he be moved from a hospital there to the prison in Cairo where his sons and associates are being held.
In Suez, thousands of protesters came out of Friday prayers to call for purging old regime figures from the media.
On Thursday, the military warned against unauthorized protests and said it would not send troops to protect Friday's rally.
"I am tired of dictatorship, whether it was Mubarak or is the military right now," student Yussif Ahmed told the blog Bikra Masr. "We are going to make our voices heard, and hopefully the military leadership will start to change its ways and put Egypt on the right track."
"What we need, and what the people want, is a radical break," said Samira Abdelsalam.
