More than 2000 protesters in Cairo demand to be allowed to fight with Hizbullah

More than 2000 people marched in downtown Cairo on Saturday, demanding authorities allow

them to fight in Lebanon in support of Hizbullah, police said. The crowd, including activists from several political factions, shouted anti-Israel slogans and vowed to support the guerrillas. "We will all be resistance in the Arabs' struggle against Israel," they yelled, while some set Israeli and US flags on fire.


Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has explicitly said Egypt will not be dragged into the conflict militarily, but the crowd's demand was indicative of the growing support in the Arab world for the Hizbullah guerrillas. (AP)
