Pro-democracy protesters are continuing their sit-in in Cairo’s Tahrir (Liberation) Square for the fourteenth consecutive day, showing no signs of being appeased by talks held a day earlier between the government and opposition groups.
People seeking President Hosni Mubarak’s immediate ouster were still camped out in the square on Monday while life was slowly getting back to normal in other parts of the Egyptian capital following a fortnight of turmoil.
A symbolic funeral procession was also held in the square for a journalist killed by a sniper during the unrest. The procession was led by the journalist’s wife and daughter. UN says at least 300 people were killed in the violence during the period.
An Al Jazeera correspondent said traffic in the streets was increasing while businesses were beginning to reopen.
