Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak sacked his entire Cabinet today after violent protests saw at least 35 people killed and more than a thousand injured.

Protesters ignored an internet blackout and disruption of mobile phone services to stage mass demonstrations in Cairo, Suez and Alexandria.

Running battles were still taking place this morning despite a curfew and extra security forces and army personnel have been deployed to prevent looting.

In a televised address, President Mubarak made vague promises of social reform but did not offer to step down himself.
