Mubarak: I Will Not Leave Egypt

As millions in Egypt demand the immediate end of President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule, Mubarak pledges that he won't leave Egypt, accusing the opposition of having a secret agenda.

The Egyptian long-time president has defied the widespread calls for his resignation.

"This is my country. This is where I lived, I fought and defended its land, sovereignty and interests, and I will die on its soil," Mubarak said.

Instead, he has accused the opposition of carrying out a secret agenda by turning what he called once peaceful protests violent.'



Human Rights Watch: Mubarak Officers Commit Violence

Human Rights Watch has accused elements loyal to Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak of committing acts of violence and looting in an attempt to undermine the Egyptian revolution.

The group has confirmed several cases where undercover police loyal to Mubarak instigated raids and hostility during demonstrations in the North African country.

According to Peter Bouckaert, emergency director for Human Rights Watch, there are reports of injured looters with police ID cards getting treatment in hospitals.

In addition, Bouckaert confirms cases of looters and vandals in the Egyptian cities of Cairo and Alexandria with police identification cards.
