Egypt: reactions to extension of state of emergency

Citizens in Cairo share their views on the decision to extend the state of emergency for a further two months.

The president's office said the decision had been taken because of the security situation.

A separate decision will be made on the night-time curfew which is in effect in parts of the country.

Egyptians lived under a state of emergency - which gives extra powers to the security services - for more than three decades, until President Mubarak was forced from power two years ago.
