Egypt Army Commander Addresses Crowd in Tahrir

Saturday, 05 February 2011 10:05 AM EST

CAIRO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - An Egyptian army commander addressed thousands of Egyptians camped out at Tahrir Square in central Cairo on Saturday in an effort to persuade them to stop a protest that has stalled economic life in the capital.

"You all have the right to express yourselves but please save what is left of Egypt. Look around you," Hassan al-Roweny said using a loud speaker and standing on a podium.

The crowd responded with shouts that President Hosni Mubarak should resign, at which Roweny stepped down saying: "I will not speak amid such chants."
