IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Cairo, Feb 2, IRNA -- The Egyptian capital city of Cairo is still in turmoil despite Hosni Mubarak's short speech on Tuesday which increased the protesters' fury in Egypt, IRNA correspondent reported here on Wednesday.

Today is the ninth day the Egyptians started protests against the rule of the current President of Egypt, Mubarak.

The Egyptian dissenters chant anti-government words, call President Mubarak as 'betrayer,' and hurl their shoes at the Mubarak pictures.

The hurling of shoes at ex-US President George W. Bush on his farewell visit to Iraq has become a symbol of expressing protests across the world.

The news from the hospitals show that nearly 200 people have been killed at the protests in the Egyptian cities during the last week.

There is no official report on the injured and detainees.
