Egyptians Seek 'Second Revolution'

In an online call posted on a social network, the Coalition of the Revolution Youth urged rallies across the country aimed at reigniting the "Friday of Anger" demonstrations that led to the collapse of former President Hosni Mubarak's three-decade rule, Egypt's newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported on Thursday.

According to the coalition, protesters demanded speeding up trials of former regime's figures, drafting a new constitution before the parliamentary elections, releasing of political detainees and putting an end to the use of excessive force against civilians.

The activists also say economic demands as well as return of all fortunes stolen by Mubarak's figures would take the center stage in the protests.'
