Egyptian Islamists do not intend to continue the Tahrir protests overnight

Islamist clerics state they never intended to spend the night in Tahrir, but simply to protest to enforce God's law

Islamist protesters, who dominated this Friday's protests with chants supporting Islamisation, are starting to leave Tahrir Square.

According to several Salafist clerics in the square, the Islamists never intended to turn today’s “Friday of popular will and united front” protests into an open-ended sit-in, nor spend the night in the square, as other protesters have done during the previous months.

The clerics say that Islamists held today's protest only to express the will of the people, enforce God’s law and that of the holy Quran.
