world Updated: Jan 30, 2011 14:42 IST

More than 1,000 protesters, who were being joined by a stream of others, gathered in central Cairo on Sunday demanding President Hosni Mubarak step down and dismissing his appointment of a vice president.

"Hosni Mubarak, Omar Suleiman, both of you are agents of the Americans," shouted protesters, referring to the appointment of intelligence chief Suleiman as a vice president, the first time Mubarak has appointed a deputy in 30 years of office.

It was the position Mubarak held before he become president. "Mubarak, Mubarak, the plane awaits," the demonstrators also chanted.
