CAIRO – Egyptian protesters on Monday called for an indefinite general strike and a “million man march” on Tuesday in Cairo, upping the stakes in their bid to topple President Hosni Mubarak’s creaking regime.

“It was decided overnight that there will be a million man march on Tuesday,” Eid Mohammed, one of the protesters and organisers, told AFP.
