President Mubarak of Egypt refuses to resign
President Mubarak of Egypt has again refused to bow to pressure to quit and has insisted that he will stay on until the next election.
Tens of thousands of protestors had gathered in Tahrir square to hear his televised address after there were indications that he was about to stand aside.
But as it became clear that after 17 days of demonstrations he was determined to stay on, their sense of expectation quickly turned to fury.
