Egyptians demand deeper and faster reforms
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/27/us-egypt-protest-idUSTRE74Q2TW20110527

Reuters) - Thousands of Egyptians packed Cairo's Tahrir Square Friday in what organizers called a "second revolution" to push for faster reforms and a speedy trial for ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his former aides.

Activists complain of delays in putting Mubarak, his family and members of his ousted regime on trial and that the army has not restored order quickly enough to the country of 80 million.

Egyptians are also demanding an end to endemic graft, one of the main grievances that drove thousands of protesters onto the streets in the uprising that began on January 25.

"After some 1,000 martyrs ... people do not see any change," said Mustafa Ali Menshawi, a 38-year-old accountant, who was helping marshal crowds flooding into the square.
