Key Points:

1. Egypt is seeing another day of huge protests against the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, with the demonstrators responding to the call for a "march of a million" in Cairo.

2. There has been a festive atmosphere in Tahrir Square, the epicentre of the demonstrations. The Egyptian army has said it will not use force against protesters.

3. The new Vice-President, Omar Suleiman, has raised the prospect of dialogue with the opposition - but prominent opposition figures say Mr Mubarak must go first. One of them, Mohamed ElBaradei, called on Mr Mubarak to stand down by Friday at the latest.

Too bad the US chose to turn a blind eye to Mubarak's methods of interrogation and torture, because we (ahem...Bush Administration) wanted to know what he might be finding out in the course of such cruelty.
