Protesters march on Egyptian Embassy
Dozens of protesters are marching from the Egyptian Embassy in Washington to the White House, calling for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down.
Some held signs Saturday calling for a peaceful response to the uprising in Egypt. One read “No More Bloodshed.” The protesters marched from the embassy down Connecticut Avenue toward the White House, where many have gathered to ask President Barack Obama to support Egyptians who want democratic reforms.
The protesters came from far beyond Washington. The Flint Journal newspaper reports about 50 people in Michigan boarded a bus Friday to join the protest in Washington, picking up others in Detroit and Toledo, Ohio.
Protests were also staged at the embassy on Tuesday and last Saturday.
