Mohamed ElBaradei: The Egyptian people have revolted

Thousands of people have taken to the streets in Egypt on a fifth day of protests, despite President Mubarak appearing on TV on Friday to announce he was sacking his government.

In Cairo, police used rubber bullets and tear gas in clashes with protesters at the interior ministry and there have also been clashes in the cities of Alexandria and Ismailiya.

Speaking to the BBC's Jeremy Bowen, pro-democracy activist Mohamed ElBaradei said that "the Egyptian people have revolted against 58 years of repression".
